The article offers information on hybrid California oaks with the first hybrid recognized and named Quercus morelus by Albert Kellogg in 1863. Oak studies revealed that oak hybrids fit into a single pattern different from other species and they grow in the margins of ranges where a parent species is growing. Also discussed are the morphological comparisons of oak hybrid, the progeny test of Quercus x morehus and puzzling questions regarding oak hybrids.
