An evergreen (or it may be, in cold climates, sub-evergreen) shrub 6 ft or more high; young shoots very slender, furnished with starry down at first, becoming nearly or quite glabrous by late autumn. Leaves ovate-lanceolate to oblong, pointed at the apex, rounded to wedge-shaped at the base, the margins set with triangular spine-tipped teeth, 34 to 212 in. long, 38 to 118 in. wide, dark green and at first starry downy on both surfaces, becoming nearly glabrous by autumn except on the midrib and especially at the base beneath; stalk 112 to 14 in. long. Fruits short-stalked, solitary; acorns roundish egg-shaped, 13 to 12 in. wide, silky at the top; cup 12 to 34 in. wide, with reflexed, awl-shaped downy scales.

Native of W. China; originally discovered by the Italian missionary Giraldi, in Shensi, in 1895; introduced in 1914, probably by F. N. Meyer. Wilson found it common in warm, semi-arid regions of the Min River in W. Szechwan.

There is an example 9 ft high in the National Botanic Garden, Glasnevin, near Dublin (1966).
