Growing & Maintenance Tips for Quercus muehlenbergii

Easily grown in an average to medium, well-drained soil, in full sun. It primarily grows in dry, rocky soils in the wild, but thrives in a moist, fertile loam in cultivation with relatively good drought tolerance. May take up to 30 years for this tree to bear its first crop of acorns.
