Quercus germana - Royal Oakquercusgermana tree
This cloud forest Mexico oak is rarely encountered in the USA.  It is native to East and N.E. Mexico, usually found at 800-1800 m. (2625-5905 ft.).  The species reaches 25 m. (82 ft.) tall, but should be smaller in cultivation.  We have two Royal oaks over ten years old and have been distributing acorns to interested nurserymen.
