Quercus ilex - Holly Oak
Holly Oak is a large evergreen oak native to the Mediterranean with dense foliage and a rounded crown. It grows well in rich, moist well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It can reach a height of 30-60 feet with an equal spread. Oval leaves are a dark glossy green with silvery undersides, with young leaves resembling holly leaves that become smooth over time. Brown acorns are produced in small clusters in the fall.
