Quercus rubra, the Red Oak tree will create a glorious display in a large garden. It is known for its stunning, vibrant display of deep red leaves in autumn, outdoing many other trees in terms of size, boldness and a wow-factor.
Red Oaks are fast growing deciduous trees and display a lovely rich covering of large lobed, dark green leaves in the summer. After the leaves have fallen in the winter, the bark offers an intriguing smooth, grey-brown or dark grey colour, creating an eye-catching look in a bare garden. The spring catkins are a source of nectar for bees and once pollinated, become acorns which are popular with wildlife, such as squirrels and great fun for children to collect.
Plant your Red Oak tree in deep, well-drained and lime-free soil. It is fully hardy and will tolerate full sun or partial shade. The tree has an open, spreading habit and can reach heights of 15m and spreads of 5m. The deeply rounded crown offers a perfect nesting place for a variety of birds, bringing movement and sound into your garden.
This imposing tree offers all year round interest and will become a grand feature in a large garden. It is also ideal for open parks, public spaces and looks majestic lining a long and winding road or driveway. Oak trees are known to live for 100’s of years and are well embedded into English culture in folklore, traditions, art and poetry. Plant yours where it will see generations of your family enjoying time spent under its shady branches.
