Pyramidal when young it can resemble Quercus palustris in shape and habit and certainly rivals it for autumn colour when its foliage turns magnificent reds oranges and yellows.

The dark glossy green leaves are narrowly oval and can reach 15cm in length.

They do not tolerate lime soils so please bear this in mind if you choose one.
