Compton Hybrid Oak

Arbor Walk #128

The Compton Hybrid Oak is a natural hybrid between the Southern Live Oak and the Overcup Oak and can be found in the areas with overlapping distributions of the two parent species.

The leaves of these trees are interestingly semi-evergreen because the Southern Live Oak is evergreen and the Overcup Oak is deciduous. This means the foliage tends to last much longer on the plant compared to completely deciduous species.
