Young specimens of this handsomely shaped tree start out with a pyramidal crown which later becomes almost round. The trunk remains smooth for many years; only in older specimens does the bark become somewhat rough and grooved. The leaves are elongated with a smooth and slightly undulating edge. On the upper side they are glossy dark green, on the underside light green and covered with grey hairs. The brownish-red central vein is also a remarkable feature. In the autumn the leaves turn yellowish-brown and acorns are single or in pairs. Quercus Imbricaria is one of the finest oaks for use in parks and is particularly remarkable for its exceptional leaf shape.
