This lovely sturdy Oak is popular due to its spectacular Autumn display when the dark green foliage turns to shades of orange, bronze and brilliant red, displaying more intense colour in colder environments. It holds its foliage, sometimes into early Winter, and in Spring will produce acorns when the tree is mature. Similar to the Red Oak and Pin Oak, but generally preferred for its more brilliant Autumn display. Growing to around 12 metres, it would be best suited to a large garden and would look stunning as an avenue planting. It requires a position in full sun to part shade and is fairly adaptable to its surrounding environment.
