Pedunculate x Sessile Oak Quercus x rosaceae
This is one of our finest trees. It shows features of both Pedunculate and Sessile Oaks; one of these being the presence of stalked and un-stalked acorns. Hybridisation is common between our two native oaks and many of the oaks at Keele show signs of this. Deciding whether you have a hybrid is not straightforward and readers are directed to Separating Sessile and Pedunculate Oaks for details.
