Water Hickory

Carya aquatica


Water hickory is found along the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains from Virginia to Florida and west into Texas. It also grows in the Mississippi valley as far north as southern Illinois.


Water hickory grows best in moist, well-drained, loamy soils, along riverbanks and in sloughs and flood plain forests, where flooding is brief. It tolerates wet, but not continuously saturated sites. It prefers partial shade to full sun.


Palm Beach County, Riverbend Park.
