Product Details

The Pin Oak is a beautifully magnificent member of the Oak family which produces a stunning display of autumn colour.

Quercus palustris is a delicate leaved Oak similar to Quercus coccinea, but producing a much more pyramidal crown. The leaves are characteristically Oak lobed, with deeply cut, almost pointed looking margins. In the autumn time, the brilliant lime green turns a beautiful range of scarlet.

This majestic tree was introduced to the UK from North America in 1800 and won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002. The Pin Oak is relatively tough, withstanding a range of soil conditions, including some limited exposure to water logging, that said it gives best performance on free draining, slightly acidic soil.

In the UK this tree does not get to such monstrous height as it does in its native USA, where a specimen Quercus palustris is reported at measuring 37m high and wide!

The Pin Oak is a super addition to bring autumn colour to any planting scheme which requires a specimen with stature and presence. It requires space to be truly appreciated.

Mature height: 20m+
