Canyon Live Oak, Quercus chrysolepis, is an evergreen tree that grows to about 40ft. In the Sierras or California's Northern Coastal areas the trees are fast and can reach 60 ft., along the Southern Coast ranges and the interface with the desert the trees are smaller and more structured. The leaves of this oak can be toothed or smooth, (sometimes on the same tree). They are dark green on top and fuzzy gold-white underneath.

Canyon Live Oak is native to canyons and is widely distributed throughout California, it likes sun, moderate water. It is more beautiful than live oak. This tree grows well in most of California and the West. I would expect it to grow well in much of the east and Europe.

Quercus chrysolepis is also known as Maul Oak, Iron Oak, Hickory Oak, Goldenleaf Oak and Goldencup Oak.
