Live Oaks in New Jersey

simchanj7(z6/7 NJ)April 21, 2006

I am interested in growing live oaks in Central New Jersey for winter interest. I know the most common live oak species, quercus virginiana, doesn't stand a chance here. What about some other species? what is the hardiest live oak species?

Why does Live Oaks in New Jersey stay at the top of this list, when the posting is nearly 4 months old with NO responses? I am so sick of looking at it.

Q. virginiana is foliage hardy to around zero and wood hardy to subzero, although I don't know the limit. This is assuming a more northern seed source. Mine has been slow-growing, but hardy. Q. myrsinifolia survived -6 here in 1994 with no damage, as did Lithocarpus henryi. Keep in mind wind is a worse enemy than cold.
