Description: Amazing pink spring new growth followed by repeated flushes into fall, and very large acorns, make this smaller wild collected Mexican oak a spectacle throughout the year. More suited to warmer zones, such as 9a. Though it can handle temps into the low teens, late fall new foliage will be damaged by an early freeze.
