Sean Hogan of Cistus Nursery in Portland, Oregon collected the La Siberia strain from 10 ft. tall trees in a high mountain valley in Tamaulipas, Mexico. The seedlings we offer you come from 25 ft. Portland trees from the original seed expedition. The leaves are attractively fuzzy and crinkled on these slow growers. We would expect them to be much hardier than zone 7, but we won't know until they're tested in colder regions. Everything about this oak is different than what you know of oak trees; growing like a shrub when conditions are harsh or a tree when given a little attention and irrigation the evergreen foliage is small and rugged. It is a durable and adaptable plant.

Info

This is from our 1991 collection from high valley in Mexico's Nuevo Leon state and named for the town and the cold climate from which it comes. In habitat these form dense 6-8' shrubs with undulate and glossy fiddle-shaped leaves, deep green and ever so lightly furry above with a thick woolly coating of cream to light orange fur beneath. OoooH! Our original seed collections have grown in our somewhat more lavish conditions to 15' small trees just large enough to show off the reflective undersides of the leaves. OoooH! OooH! From its habitat we suggest this might well be frost hardy into USDA zone 6 but we know zone 7 is a no-brainer. Ohhhhh, ohhh, ohhh!
