Leather Oak. Aptly named, with leathery, evergreen, almost
holly-like leaves on this is serpentine endemic shrub oak native to chaparral regions of
the California Coast Ranges as well as the foothills of the Sierra and San
Gabriel Mountains. A FRF shout-out to the collection work of Ian Barclay of The Desert Northwest. This pairs nicely with manzanita in its native habitat, and would in your garden too. Excellent drought tolerance. Perfect for that dry or rocky spot in your garden.
