Looking for a beautiful and resilient tree to add to your landscape? Consider the Quercus polymorpha, also known as the Mexican white oak, Monterrey oak, or netleaf white oak. This North American species of oak is widespread in Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras and can also be found in west Texas canyons. It is a relatively fast-growing and practically evergreen tree up to 20 meters tall with gray or brown bark and elliptical or egg-shaped leaves. The Quercus polymorpha is more resistant to oak wilt and other diseases and pests than other oaks, making it an excellent choice for ornamental purposes.
