Info

A favorite West Coast native shrub and very diminutive form of the tan oak. These Siskiyou Mountains endemics grow only to 3-4' in height, forming dense rounded shrubs. The leaves -- to 2" and the most intense light blue we have ever found in this collection from the Oregon Mountain -- have undersides of nearly white and new growth a blue-tinted-pink and furry. The flowers look like those of a chestnut with branched, cream-colored inflorescences and golden brown “acorns.” Tough, native mostly to serpentine soil regions, they seem at home anywhere on the West Coast with lean soil and away from summer garden water. Not a plant for humid summer climates. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6. [SBH 7413]

The fuzzy pink new leaves appear to be flowers at first glance. Sage green evergreen leaves on shrubby 5' plants. No summer water for sake of longevity.
