Quercus virginiana x fusiformis 'Joan Lionetti' PP27646

Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak


Civano Growers pays homage to the founder of Tucson Clean and Beautiful, Joan Lionetti, by naming this unrivaled oak clone in her honor. This beautiful evergreen oak is praised for its fast growth, straight trunk and symmetrical canopy. Its superior form will provide any landscape with dense shade all year long. The tree prefers full sun and moderate water until established. It grows to 30’ tall at maturity. These noteworthy features, along with the tree's tough-as-nails demeanor and smaller structure make the Joan Lionetti Texas Live Oak an ideal residential or streetscape tree.
