The Live Oak, Quercus virginiana, is a large, spreading, broad-leafed evergreen tree that grows near the Coast but also occurs in moist rich woods and along stream banks.

On the Gulf Coast, live oaks often support many types of epiphytic plants, including Spanish moss which hangs in weeping garlands, giving the trees a striking appearance. Since Live Oak is a large, fast growing tree, it should be restricted to large yards or parks where the spreading form can be accommodated.

Sweet edible acorns are usually produced in great abundance and are of value to many birds and mammals. The name live oak comes from the fact that evergreen oaks remain green and "live" throughout winter, when other oaks are dormant, leafless and "dead"-looking.
