Intermediate between black and one of the evergreen red oaks. I'm not clear which reds are up here. Canyon live, shreve, interior live? Lots of agrifolia.
Extensive stand on serpentine on pine hill
Red oak. Canyon? Shreve? Interior live? Deep cups. Distinct from avrifolia around here. Leaf undersides glaucous, a little bit lighter than upper but not silvery or yellow.
Leaves shallow lobed, yellowish green hairs on underside. Lots of durata nearby
How.much further north does this go?
Big clump.on roadside
White flowers. Roadside. 2 m tall. In flower
Lots of avrifolia.around and this looks distinct. Or maybe this is canyon live?
Here is larger chaparral patch, close to last observation. And see hillside in background. Photo looking NE from waypoint.
Small patch with Ceanothus. Where is nearest chaparral?
Small opening in oak woodland. Where is nearest large chaparral patch?
By cascade creek in stream bottom. Lots of trees on adjacent hill slopes as well.
Found in an orb web next to my front door. Scale not evident in photo but it was quite large, about 1" across.
