$35.00 $31.50

Dwarf Chinkapin Oak is one of the best native shrub oaks. It begins producing acorns at a young age, often when only three or four years old. Unlike many oaks, once it starts bearing, it has a good crop almost every year. Its acorns are also less bitter and more palatable to wildlife than those of most other oaks. Sulfur-yellow catkins in spring. Chocolate acorns late summer. This is a tough plant that tolerates drought and poor soils well. Can be grown as a large shrub or pruned into a small tree. Best grown in full sun. Seed collected from Southeast Nebr. * 2008 GreatPlants Release
