Quercus durata IB-1303
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.

Oregon White Oak. This variety of Q. garryana hugs the foothills of the western Sierra Nevada and southern Oregon.

Another excellent Oak we're able to offer thanks to Ian Barclay of The Desert Northwest.
