||This species, Quercus georgiana, is my second favorite native oak. It is a rare, medium sized, single trunk, member of the Red Oak group with an average mature size of 30'High x 15'Wide fertile soils. In dry xeric conditions it usually is multi-trunked and rarely reaches a height over 15'. It has shiny dark green foliage that turns deep burgundy to blood red in the fall. Its fall foliage rivals that of the Scarlet Oak for color. It is drought tolerant and prefers full sun. Georgia Oak is an excellent ornamental and because of its medium size it can be planted in places where larger shade trees are not applicable. It produces small acorns that are a favorite of quail, turkey and songbirds. It is another species we recommend as a container plant for decks, patio and pool sides.
