Photo of Quercus lyrata (overcup oak)

Quercus lyrata - Commonly called overcup oak, it is a medium sized deciduous oak that typically grows to 40-60' tall with a straight trunk and broad rounded crown. Ornamentally insignificant flowers bloom in March or April (males in slender yellow catkins to 4-6" long and females in short few-flowered reddish spikes). Deep green leaves with fuzzy white undersides. Leaves turn shades of yellow-brown (sometimes with orange and red) in fall. Female flowers give way to acorns (to 1" long) which mature in September to October. Slightly shaggy gray to grayish-brown bark on mature trees is reminiscent of white oak. Family: Fagaceae
