Quercus ‘suber’


Common Name: Evergreen Cork Oak


Large growing, short stemmed, wide spreading tree native to the Mediterranean . Very thick corky bark is harvested off trees at least 25 years of age for wine corks and tiling .This tree tolerates hot dry sites and is found growing on very hilly country in the Mediterranean unsuited to other crops. A wonderful tree in a well drained and hot courtyard. A tree worthy of a place in a interactive setting where children can tack things to the deep fissured bark. Frost and coastal hardy.
