Quercus ilicifolia (bear oak or scrub oak)
Quercus ilicifolia - A little oak with a big name: bear oak. With such a powerful-sounding name one might expect a towering giant of a tree with thick branches and large acorns. It is a small tree, or shrub, that can reach 1-8 m in height with branches 5-12 cm wide. Its leaves have a holly-like appearance. However, bear oak leaves have little resemblance to actual holly leaves, which have small leathery leaves. The upper surface of the Quercus ilicifolia leaves is a glossy green, with beautiful silvery hairs on the underside. The buds and twigs are likewise covered in small hairs. In the fall the foliage turns a fiery orange or a purplish red. Height: 15 - 20 ft - Spread: 10 - 15 ft.. Family : Fagaceae
