Quercus leana

Common name: Black x Shingle Oak

Native plant

Oak hybrids are a dime a dozen, but this one may be worth a quarter. Q. leana has wildly variable leaves with some having many pointed lobes and others with maybe one. Other than the leaves this tree has shown to be fairly stable in form and size, having the narrower crown of the shingle oak and the height and heavier limbs of black oak. We really like this plant’s speedy growth and fall color of a russet orange, red and purple.
