WEST POINT, MS – At Mossy Oak Nativ Nurseries, we’re all about providing the best that Mother Nature has to offer, and our unique line of oak hybrids are second to none. Our newest offering, Scarlet x Willow Oak Hybrid (Quercus coccinea x phellow), is arguably the most productive and beautiful of them all.
Dudley Phelps of Mossy Oak Nativ Nurseries explains how the new red oak hybrid offering came to be and why it’s a must for wildlife:
“The first year we discovered and collected acorns from the ancient open-grown parent tree, it was towering above its cohorts. The next year it had been reduced to stump from an errant lightning strike. However, when we returned for a follow up visit the following year, it had regrown a new main stem that was covered in acorns! Fast forward several years and it still produces a huge crop followed by an incredible display of fall color, making a perfect combination landscape/wildlife tree. Thanks to the parentage, you can grow them on a multitude of sites.”
Nativ Nurseries is in the business of providing native plants and trees to nurture wildlife habitat. And these aren’t your garden variety oak trees; Nativ Nurseries specializes in hand-selected and hand-grown species that will turn any piece of property into a wildlife haven.
