One of the West's most majestic oaks -- to 30-60' -- ranging from the foothills of southern California to western Oregon, with dark, furrowed bark and upright, vase shape . The shiny leaves look a bit like a typical red or pin oak and color to oranges and yellows in mid to late fall. Drought tolerant and hard to find in native plant nurseries, these represent our collections from Dunsmuir Canyon in the Siskiyou Mountains. USDA zone 6.

The Girl Scouts learned this "black" oak by the pointed "witch' s finger-nail" tips on the leaves!, though it may be named for its dark bark; the leaves of this graceful 40-80' tree are pinkish in spring ; bright-yellow in fall. Sun/Med-Dry/GdDrain
