Heat-Loving Oak Tree with Dense Shade

Do you need a tree that’s going to thrive in the heat and give you dense shade to keep your landscape cool? The Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak is an oak cultivar that was bred to grow quickly in arid conditions.

With dense shade and little to no maintenance required, the Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak is ideal for landscapes and streetscapes alike. It grows up to 20-30 ft. with a canopy that's 20-30 ft., as well! This large canopy casts a shade that will cool your space all year long with its evergreen leaves.

These evergreen leaves are dark green with leathery tops and soft and fuzzy undersides. They only shed for a brief time at the beginning of spring to make room for the next year's new growth and inconspicuous blooms.

And you can rest easy knowing that your Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak isn’t going to need lots of maintenance. It requires very little trimming and pruning and is resistant to diseases and pests, including rabbits and deer.

Since this tree was bred to thrive in the arid temperatures of the southern United States, it’s extremely heat and drought tolerant. Plus, it’s also tolerant to long periods of freezing temperatures.

Whether you’re looking for a shade tree for your hot and dry landscapes or a low- maintenance tree for your streetscape, the Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak would be the perfect solution. Order yours before they’re gone!
