Quercus muehlenbergii | Bay Area

This is what you typically see when you try to grow Quercus muehlenbergii in the Bay Area, or other areas with prevalent powdery mildew. This appears true of any Chinkapin Oak from the primary range of the species. They are highly susceptible to disfiguring fungal infection, and are quite discouraging to grow.
