Description

Apparently naturalized in sand hill habitat along the edge of U.S. 1; growing with Pinus palustris, Quercus laevis, Q. incana, Q. margarettae, and Q. nigra. Perhaps the little, flat seeds get blown down the highway by passing traffic.

Description

Quercus drummondii is a very common oak in parts of central Texas. It seems to be intermediate between Q. margarettae and Q. stellata and may represent a hybrid between the two. See the discussion about this in the Flora of North America: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233501059

Description

Large, old tree, probably an old field remnant before the cemetery was here.

The wrinkled acorn surface seems to be a reliable feature of this species and the related Q. pagoda.

The bark, leaf close-up and leaf pair photos are from the same tree, but about four years later.

This six-foot-tall plant had an enormous amount of insect visitation, the most I've ever seen on any plant at one time.

Mature, dry fruit photographed from the same plant about 2.5 months later.

Quercus imbricaria x rubra.

I need to hire some squirrels to collect some branches of this for me.

This hybrid occurs rarely in this area. Quercus imbricaria is scattered in woodlands around here as a naturalized species, derived from some old cultivated trees nearby in Genesee Valley Park. As this species has spread out through the woodands here it has hybridized with Quercus rubra, a common species in this area.
