Κermes Οak

Photo of overgrazed Κermes Οak, Quercus coccifera, in its natural environment. This evergreen oak has leathery dark green spiny leaves and their size vary. Its normal form it is a big shrub, but when conditions allow it, it can become a big tree. Compared to other oaks, it is very resistant to draught.
