Runner Oak


(Quercus pumila) Red Oak Zone 7-9

Runner Oak is a shrub oak that grows to about 3 feet in height and is tardily deciduous. It spreads through stolons or “runners” to form thickets. Runner Oak is found on dry sandy to loamy soils of pine flatwoods, oak-pine scrub, savannas and ridges. Adapted to fire, Runner Oak re-sprouts quickly with increased acorn production once burned. Acorns are produced in 2-3 years, providing excellent food source and habitat for turkey. Whitetails browse Runner Oak and eat the acorns.
