Our native oak that can develop into a majestic, muscular specimen if you have 100 years to spare is, truth be known, handsome at any age and would be a wonderful companion to grasses or manzanitas. Hailing from dry prairies and foothills to rocky bluffs, it tolerates winter wet but needs summer dry — a Mediterranean climate such as we have here on the east side of the Coast Range in Oregon. It's deciduous but becomes covered with gray-green usnea lichen (old man's beard) that is exposed in winter when leaves are absent, consequently it is always clad.

Minimum temperature: 0º F
