Kerm Oak

Quercus coccifera

Description:

Prickly shrub 1.5m high with leaves like holly, copious tiny flowers on weeping racemes. Lots of fresh, shiny, coppery coloured leaves at this time of year.

Habitat:

Very common on undisturbed limestone slopes, from 20m elevation up to maybe 500m?

Notes:

Often heavily grazed by goats, when it can form a dense rounded low form, but left ungrazed can turn into an attractive tree.
