Quercus robur



Quercus robur, common name common oak, pedunculate oak, European oak or English oak, is a species of flowering plant native to most of Europe west of the Caucasus. Quercus robur (Latin quercus, "oak" + robur "strength, hard timber") is the type species of the genus (the species by which the oak genus Quercus is defined). Quercus robur is a large deciduous tree with a short stout trunk with wide-spreading branches and may grow to a height of 25m. The short-stalked leaves,13cm long or longer, have three to seven pairs of rounded lobes; they are dark green above and pale green beneath and retain their colour into winter. Many varieties are cultivated as ornamentals,including a popular columnar form. Quercus robur has lobed and nearly sessile (very short-stalked) leaves 7–14cm long. Flowering takes place in mid spring, and the fruit, called acorns, ripen by mid autumn. The acorns are 2–2.5cm long, pedunculate (having a peduncle or acorn-stalk, 3–7cm long) with one to four acorns on each peduncle. Quercus robur is very tolerant to soil conditions and the continental climate but it prefers fertile and well-watered soils. Mature trees tolerate flooding.
