Quercus fusiformis (Escarpment Live Oak)


This slow-growing and long-lived evergreen tree is native to west Texas, and is more drought-tolerant and cold-hardy than the coastal live oak. Small oblong leathery green leaves provide a dense canopy and abundant shade. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils.
