Quercus ellipsoidalis

Common name: Hill's Oak

Native plant

Hill’s Oak is now believed to be Quercus coccinea (Scarlet Oak). I have found Hill’s to be the most variable oak I grow. Some trees have small leaves, some have large leaves, some are deeply lobed, some are not, most keep their leaves, some don’t, but all have great scarlet-red fall color. Grows on sandy soils and heavy clay soils, frequently with bur oak. When full grown, it is small in stature compared to other oaks. Does well as a street tree. Many people use it as a screen by leaving it low branched. Requires full sun.
