According to Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, gray oak is most common as a shrub in New Mexico. Here, however, it appears as a small tree. The leaves are leathery, oval, and grayish or blue-green in color.
Overview of Querrcus hypoleucoides, commonly called silverleaf or whiteleaf oak, from a hike on Gila National Forest road 157S, photographed on 4 January 2007. This lovely oak species is evergreen and is easily distinguished by the whitish, hairy underside of the leaves. As Carter (1997) notes, the species name, hypleucoides means "white underneath."
