Description from Johnson’s Nursery: The iconic oak of Wisconsin! Bur Oak is one of the toughest oaks, tolerant of highly alkaline soils and drought. Most have interesting corky bark on young branches. The acorns make it an excellent plant to attract wildlife. Use where space is not limiting as Bur Oak is large at maturity and long-lived. May also be known as Blue Oak, Mossycup Oak.
