  1. Sherrie2 - Oct 22, 2016
    South Carolina (Hardiness Zone: 8)

    Please never buy this tree. It does not have a nice canopy, and drops it's branches all the time. the acorns are many and you will be pulling up baby oaks for a year. These are one of the few trees we can remove on Hilton Head. After hurricane Mathew they are the trees that came down and destroyed homes along with pines. DO NOT EVER BUY OR PLANT THIS TREE

WATER OAK Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Quercus is very easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.
