(Quercus x comptoniae) (Quercus virginiana x Quercus lyrata) Zone 5-9
Well known white oak hybrid of Live Oak and Overcup Oak. Overcup parentage allows Compton to be grown on poorer sites than Live Oak. It can be grown further north than Live Oak; however, it becomes less evergreen the further north that it is planted. Vigorous growth and shape make Compton an excellent landscape tree.
Acorn Drop: October-December
Acorn Size: Medium-Much larger than Live oak.
