Southern Live Oak
Latin name: Quercus virginian
Planted recently at Grounds For Sculpture just east of the ring of Dana Stewart sculptures, adjacent to Maplehenge, guests can find two young Southern Live Oaks and one Escarpment Oak. While these trees are typically found further south, recent development of new cultivars has pushed their viability into our region. Recognized for their stately presence (think “Gone with the Wind”), these trees are most often found from the Carolinas to California.
