Valley Oak

Quercus lobata

Endemic to the valleys of California, English immigrants were reminded of home when they first saw this noble oak with its deeply lobed leaves. Thriving in areas with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, its leaves are aromatic and turn from yellow to light orange in autumn. Its brief period of dormancy, re-leafing in August, is a distinguishing feature from other deciduous oaks. Fast growth rate.
