Overcup oak (Quercus lyrata)
Overcup oak grows slowly, sometimes to more than 100 feet in height in its native habitat, but is more often seen 30 to 40 feet high and wide, forming a rounded silhouette with an open crown, large-diameter branches, and a twisted trunk.
The tree's dark green, leathery, lobed leaves have fuzzy, white undersides and turn a rich brown color before dropping in the fall.
Its nuts or acorns which are produced are quite popular with squirrels, turkeys, wild hogs and deer.
The rough, reddish or gray/brown bark is attractive and is worthy of display with night-time lighting.
Price listed is for 100 seedlings.
