Carya tomentosa

Common name: Mockernut Hickory

Native plant

Mockernut is similar to Shagbark in form, but differs in leaf structure (seven leaflets versus five) and no shaggy bark. Mockernut grows well on well-drained sites in full sun or light shade, and like Shagbark, light shade early in life seems to help increase the rate of growth. Still, the year-to-year growth is slow. The fall color is a clear yellow and best among our local hickories. The name ‘Mockernut’ refers to the fruit, which appears to be very large, but in reality is rather small inside of a large husk.
