Learn about the avalanche of species and forms allowing us to use new textures far outside of accepted boundaries from evergreen oaks with orange furry leaves, to Schlefferas and relatives able to withstand 10°F, and maples that look like live oaks, to Mahonia species from Mexico that make great shade trees.
