Product Description

A stately tree with the largest leaves of all Oak species, sometimes measuring up to 12 inches long. The foliage emerges downy pubescent on both sides eventually smoothing out and becoming much darker on top. In mild winters most leaves will not drop from the round, spreading canopy. Attractive cleft bark separates into gray alligator scale-like plates as the tree matures. Uniquely frill-capped acorns mature in late September to early October. Subtle bronze to burgundy fall color. Grown in clumps or single stems.
Hardy to -20°F
Maximum Elevation: 5,500 Feet
