Common Name Dwarf Chinquapin Oak Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Quercus prinoides
Description Q. prinoides is my personal favorite of the native oaks. It is a rare, small species, and a member of the white oak family that grows as an under-story dwarf multi-trunked tree to 18' high. Only found in dry upland forest throughout the southeast. It will produce heavy crops of small acorns that drop early in the fall and are very low in tannin, which gives them a pleasant taste. Deer and Turkey love this species of acorns as did primitive man because of the low tannin content. Excellent fall color, redish orange to burgundy. I grow mine in a large terra cotta pot on my patio and it makes a wonderful picturesque specimen with its multi trunked structure. Mature size is approximately 20-25' tall x 10' wide.
