Post Oak Seedlings
Post oak seedlings (Quercus stellata) is one of the many species of trees from the white oak family. This tree grows perennial plants that have elliptic and obovate shaped leaves. Its elongated coarse, strong horizontal branches contain a mixture of leaf blades varying from 3 to 5 inches long. Its three perpendicular terminal lobes grow steep, reminiscent of a Maltese cross. The deep green leaves turn yellow and brown when they bloom in March, April, and May. During this time, they provide a shady decorative ground.
Oak trees must be grown with dry soil moisture. They also need to be in a place that offers partial shading and require medium water. Post Oak trees can grow anywhere from a height of 30 to 50 feet tall. Its single gray to the reddish-brown trunk can measure anywhere from 1 to 3 1/2 feet wide. Also, oak trees produce acorns that are ready to germinate because they have no dormancy period. Most acorns measure up to 3/4 inches long and can be planted to grow more trees. These oak trees make beautiful ornamental habitats for birds, butterflies, squirrels, and other little critters.
Post Oak seedlings are indigenous to the west-central United States including but not limited to southern Illinois, upland bluffs, savannas, woodlands, slopes, and rocky glades.
As such, its seed must be planted on the dry and infertile soil. It has a relatively slow growth rate and lives about 200-400 years. Unlike other oaks, this species can germinate its acorns in the sun because it’s habitual to dry, moist, rocky or sandy environments. When the acorns have turned brown, they should be sown right away, so they don’t lose their viability. When an oak tree is planted, it grows slowly. It leaves bring beauty, decor and a little bit of shade to a landscape.
