We are thrilled to offer this rare oak species in 2021! A tall tree to provide substantial shade for your landscape once well established. Found naturally in dry upland woods and prefers acidic, well drained sandy soil in full sun, but can tolerate some shade. Dark waxy leaves give way to bold red color in the fall. Male and female flowers are both on the same tree. Acorns provide a delicious food source for squirrels and other wildlife.
A different species than the more common Pin Oak (Quercus palustris). Another common name of Q. ellipsoidalis is Northern Pin Oak.
