Product details

Selected from acorns in 1974 from a mother plant in Illinois, this magnificent clone is thought to be a Quercus roburFastigiata x Quercus bicolor cross. Its upright habit makes it a great urban tree but its resistance to powdery mildews gives its leaves a lustrous and clean look that makes Quercus robur Fastigiata look positively dowdy! Its leaves are two toned, dark green above
and silvery green beneath and the tree has great hybrid vigour.

Thriving on most free draining soils, its wonderful summer foliage display turns to yellow and orange in the autumn. Not as fastigiate as ‘Koster’ it is nevertheless still very narrow and even through I haven’t seen one at full maturity I expect it to grow to be a quarter of its width to height and this view is supported by the ongoing evidence from 30 year old plants in the States

Mature height: 12-17m
Mature spread::5-6m
