Asia Minor and Syria
Ornamental oak occurring naturally in Asia Minor where it grows to approx. 10 m tall with a broad ovoid crown, later rounded. When cultivated it grows to approx. 7 - 8 m in height with dense branches and thin twigs. Young twigs are angular and covered with a white downy layer that soon disappears. The leaves are elongated to lanceolate, 5 - 10 cm long and 1.5 - 3 cm wide. The veins stand at an angle of 45° to the central vein and the leaf edge is sharply serrated. The upper side of the leaves is glossy dark green; the underside is lighter and sometimes covered with fine hairs. The acorns are two-thirds enclosed in the cupule. The cupule is covered by broad contiguous scales, narrower on the upper side. Q. libani is a very handsome park tree.
