Texas Red Oak
The Texas Red Oak, 'Quercus buckleyi' is also known as Spanish Oak, Spotted Oak, Red Oak, and Rock Oak.
This medium sized tree may achieve a height of 30 feet or more and an equal spread. The Texas Red Oak develops a rather typical shape and form for the species, with a dense rounded canopy.
The Texas Red Oak may also be found as a multi-trunked specimen in the wild. The bark is thick with scaly ridges separated by deep, dark fissures. Plant it where it will receive hours of sunlight each day to support its moderate growth rate.
This tree requires alkaline soil for optimum growth but is adaptable to a number of soils since it is noticeably drought tolerant.
It produces brown flowers that complement the kelly-green leaves that appear in spring. These flowers are actually catkins, and the leaves on the Texas Red Oak change from their bright green shade to a deep red or burgundy shade during fall.
Due to its spring flowering habits and its stature, this tree is a decorative addition to any yard!
