This tree is a new and exciting option for southern wildlife managers that is so attractive, you may want them for your landscape as well. The Wildtree Mexican Oak is mostly deciduous and has proven to be a drought, heat and cold resistant tree that produces masses of small acorns like clockwork, every year. Tardily deciduous, it will hold onto its leaves through warmer winter areas (zone 8 and up) into late January or February, and the new leaves emerge a hot pink color in March accompanied by bright yellow dangling pollen catkins. It is extremely fast growing for an oak, and is tough as nails. Its ability to thrive in alkaline, rocky soils with little water make it an excellent choice for central and south Texas.
