There is a beautiful Japanese blue oak growing in Brookgreen Gardens, located between Mrytle Beach and Georgetown, SC. I'm surprised they're a rarity here. I've seen any marketed locally. What a shame.

With water and fertilizer it grows moderate to fast. Attractive bronze spring leaves that the deer love to eat.
