Emory oak is a slow-growing evergreen medium-sized tree, native from Texas to Arizona and south into Mexico. Emory oak is found in moist canyons, valleys and creek bottoms. The holly-like leaves are dark green, stiff and glossy with toothed margins. This plant is adaptable to varied soils as long as drainage is excellent. Although it is quite drought tolerant, it appreciates supplemental irrigation in very hot summers. Emory Oak prefers full sun exposures. Hardy to -10˚ F.
