Description

Available Autumn 2017 - This rare purple leaved selection of our native pedunculate (English) oak was discovered in 1998 in Lithuania by a Mr Timuks, after whom it is named. This cultivar doesn't generally suffer from mildew which disfigures some oaks in summer,

Quercus robur 'Timuki' has lovely, large leaves which are greenish-purple when they emerge, turning a more vivid, dark red or purple later in the summer.

Slow to establish, once settled down this is a reliable and colourful garden tree. Best for patient gardeners.
