Darlington Oak

Large, fast-growing tree much used as a street tree and shade tree in the South. It is almost evergreen and resembles Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) but is more upright and not so long-lived.  Sometimes confused with Quercus laurifolia, a bottomland species with similar unlobed small leaves. Darlington Oak occurs on sandy upland sites and needs good drainage.  It is native from southeastern Virginia southward.
