This is a really exciting new tree to us. Crimson Spire Oak amalgamates the best characteristics of its White and English Oak heritage to produce a fast-growing, hardy, columnar tree that’s a great fit for streetscapes and landscape settings. An upright habit and adaptability are inherited from English Oak (Quercus robur), while its dark green, mildew-resistant foliage and red autumn colour are inherited from the White Oak (Quercus alba)
A fast growth rate makes this rugged oak a good choice for anchoring newer landscapes. It reaches about 45 feet in height with a 15-foot spread in 20 years in a typical urban landscape setting. Dense foliage creates living screens for blocking unsightly views and muffling traffic sounds.
Proven adaptable to a wide range of climates and growing conditions, Crimson Spire Oak is appreciated by growers for its ease of care, and by landscape designers for its columnar form and stately appearance.
Columnar form is a perfect fit for narrow or confined spaces. Planted alone, in groves, or in rows, it’s the perfect vertical design element.
This fast growing, cold hardy, drought tolerant and disease resistant tree adapts to varied soils and tough urban growing conditions.
Rich, dark green leaves stay fresh and bright through the heat of summer, turning rusty red to bright red in mid to late autumn.
