Engelmann Oak is a spreading tree to 50ft. It is evergreen in its range. A slow but nice tree. Engelmann Oak has a tendency to become deciduous regularly here. It is native from Pasadena to Baja. Its speed is not too bad, about 2ft per year. This tree is another of the semi-desert species that we have found to be only semi-drought tolerant. Engelmann Oak would be at its best 20 or so feet away from a watered flower bed or lawn. Do not expect it to be cold hardy below 15-20 degrees. (There was a big one in Portland though, so natives can be surprising.) The leaf is gray-green with shallow lobes and no bristles. Plant with companions or if you live where they are, suppress the weeds and reestablish the wildflowers. Oaks.
