Description

Infomation Only - An evergreen oak native to Cyprus, Quercus alnifolia has glossy, dark green leaves and the common name, 'Golden Oak', refers to the golden-yellow tomentose (short, matted hairs) on the leaf undersides. The photos show the underside of several leaves compared to a single leaf with the upper side visible as a comparison. A very small and shrubby tree, this oak will also produce ornamental, narrow acorns once established.

This plant is currently listed on our website for Information Only - Although we have grown it in the past, sadly it is not currently available for sale. We hope to have this plant for sale at some point in the future and at this time it will be re-enabled on our website.
