Burr Oak? Swamp white oak? A hybrid? Something different? It was on the edge between a wetland and a clayplain forest.
was starting to change color in some areas...
stranded on the lakeshore due to low water...
The maples on 'Ap Gap' were just starting to change
Acutus or tabarnaemontani. Stems were soft, but seems to have more than three spikelets per stem.
Sample got a bit mashed.
Lacks the pronounced achene lobe that c. lupuliformis has.
Id uncertain. Wet area.
In emergent wetland. Invasive.
Didn't notice mint scent. Was in disturbed wet area.
Id uncertain. Was found in usually-submerged area exposed by low lake level. Forms low "lawn" in places.
Huge tree on border between clayplain and lakeside floodplain forest. Id uncertain, could be a hybrid of swamp white and bur oak. Acorns on ground didn't have burr appearance but may not have come from the same tree.
Note tightly "appressed" upper part of inflorescence. Vs z aquatica where it is more open.
East creek marsh area.
Lakeshore and wetland area. Id not 100% certain but seems like best fit.
Note two branches from panicle node, fuzzy stem sheath. This is very sharp with cutting blade edges. Not fun to walk through.
biggest ive ever seen
