In Bloom

PLANT OF THE MONTH: July 7, 2015

Notholithocarpus

Plant Name: Notholithocarpus densiflorus 

Plant Location: Nursery

Plant Notes: In full glorious bloom right now, the Notholithocarpus densiflorus (tanbark oak) is native to California forests. It is in the oak family and although does not have the distinct oak-like leaves, has clear acorn fruits.  We have several specimens in the Garden. Standing in the courtyard, look up and over the greenhouse. This specimen is over 40 feet tall and is covered in bright catkins!  Smaller versions of this tree are available in MsK Nursery.
