Common Name Sand Post Oak Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Quercus margaretta
Description Q. margaretta is a medium size member of the White Oak family that is very well suited for xeric conditions. It prefers full sun and sandy well-drained soils. Its foliage is reminiscence of Q. alba but, much smaller and thick with a waxy feel. An interesting tree producing a well rounded shape and providing good shade for xeric sites. Averaging 20'High x 15'Wide, it will produce a heavy crop of small acorns that are low in tannins which makes them a favorite food for deer and especially turkey among other wildlife on dry upland and sandy sites. Very much under used in dry landscape situations.
