Phenology: Flowering in early summer.
Habitat: Dry ridges, steep slopes, and rocky areas from montane coniferous zone to near treeline

Typical high-elevation populations in the Sierra Nevada of California can be distinguished from all shrubby forms of Quercus chrysolepis by the absence of glandular trichomes and by thin cups with small nut-attachment scars. At lower elevations in northern California and southwestern Oregon, secondary contact with Q. chrysolepis has resulted in the formation of hybrids.
