Planted a Live Oak in Springfield, Mo

Anyone else try growing a live oak tree In the area?

I planted one in the fall and it's doing well. I purchased it from a Lowes in Northern Oklahoma. Is rated to zone 5 on the tag, but I doubt that is very accurate. I have heard of people in Tennessee in zone 6a that have 20-30 year old specimens. Usually I hear of them in zones 7 and up.

I figured we have had Armadillos for years, warm enough for a Texas Armadillo, warm enough for a Texas live oak. :).
