Pedunculate oak

Quercus robur


Q. robur is phenologically and genetically very similar to Q. petrea and both species can form hybrids. However, the leaves of Q. robur have a very short stalk (3-8 mm), whereas the acorns are clustered around a long stalk. In contrast, the leaves of Q. petraea have comparably long stalks.


Q. robur: lowland or riparian forest Q. petraea: hilly terrain and low mountain ranges
