Concordia Oak

15-3   The Concordia oak (Quercus ×introgressa) is a two-generation hybrid discovered near Concordia Missouri. It is derived from Quercus prinoides × Q. muehlenbergii (dwarf chinkapin oak × standard chinkapin oak), pollinated by bicolor (swamp white oak). Oak hybridization can be very complicated, as this example shows, and the resultant trees may be difficult to identify without extensive study and genetic analysis. It is likely that you will not see many other oaks in the wild with such a complex lineage.
