Among the different species belonging to the genus Quercia, the sessiliflora or petraea Oak deserves a particular mention, known in Europe and in Italy, where it is widespread, with the name of Oak. It is a plant with a particularly expanded crown, which can reach an opening up to 20 meters, for a height instead of thirty. The leaves have the classic lobed shape, while the fruits are sessile, that is attached directly to the branch without petiole.
Like other oak species, it also grows very well on well-drained soils, preferring sunny positions. After being planted in autumn or even in spring, the young plants do not need supports at least up to a height of about one meter. After planting, vegetative tips can be trimmed to encourage branching. When the plants, after being planted in autumn, show sufficient growth, it is good to prune the lower side branches in February to keep the stem as clean as possible. Another pruning may be necessary in September.
