Quercus porphyrogenita

Fagaceae

This tree that John Fairey and Carl Schoenfeld had collected from the San Carlos Mountains was only recently identified confidently with the help of Mexican collaborators. Our mature trees have a wonderful spreading form with foliage that is quite blue-green. From open pollinated garden seed, so hybridization is always possible, but they look convincing so far.
