If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

Oak Trees -5 Plants 3-4 Feet, Hand Selected For Your Zone
These stunning oaks grow in hardiness zones 3-9. They can tolerate partial shade but prefer full sun. Oak trees display beautiful green or orange foliage and grow rapidly. If you have dry soil, not worry, the oak trees are drought tolerant and offer beautiful shade on warm days.
Oak trees are known for providing several of the materials we use daily, including wood for our homes, wine barrels, and furniture.
There are over 600 oak trees species, including white oak, pin oak, chestnut oak, red oak, and Shumard.
White oak trees don't have white bark but are still an attractive addition to your landscape. The trees reach about 90 feet at maturity and prefer moist, well-drained soil.
Pin oak, also called Swamp Spanish oak, is a Native American tree that grows between 60-70 feet tall. The pin oak doesn't shed its leaves during winter; instead, it starts the shedding process when new leaves arrive in autumn.
Chestnut oak provides a large canopy of shade and grows best in clay or silt soils. They grow naturally at the top of the mountains in nearly every state in the U.S. The medium to dark green leaves grows in clusters and visually appealing contrast to the tree's brownish-gray bark.
Red oak is also called champion oak and can grow to be up to 150 feet tall. The tree is native to North America. The trees grow in the sun or shade and prefer sandy soil. However, planting the red oak in the sun makes it grow faster.
Shumard is the most massive variation of red oak trees. The bark has a shiny texture that looks similar to a mirror. The bark darkens as the tree ages. Shumard oaks can reach up to 20 feet at maturity and grow best in partially shaded areas.
