Quercus sp.‘San Carlos’ ((San Carlos Mountains Red Oak))

Fagaceae

Previously thought to be a form of Quercus sartorii, the identity of this oak species is inconclusive, and could very well be a new, undescribed species. We are sticking with the designation that Yucca Do Nursery offered it as in past years, which refers to the San Carlos Mountains in northeastern Tamaulipas where John Fairey and Carl Schoenfeld collected it. The unique shape of the narrow, jaggedly toothed leaves that emerge a hot pink color make this a favorite oak among many enthusiasts. We have many seedlings available propagated from acorns collected in the garden.
