Description

Information Only - A large semi-evergreen oak, Quercus x hispanica 'Lucombeana' was raised in Exeter in 1763 by Mr Lucombe from acorns which were hybrids of Quercus cerris and Quercus suber.

Looking a little like a traditional Quercus robur (English Oak) which keeps its leaves through the year, this is a little more vigorous than the other Quercus x hispanica listed here.

This plant is currently listed on our website for Information Only - It is currently not available. We hope to have this plant for sale at some point in the future and at this time the 'buy now' button will be re-enabled on our website.
