Description

An unusual new introduction from Holland, Quercus cerris 'Curly Head' is a dwarf oak with dark green, curly leaves and a distinctive upright, fairly columnar habit. The leaves are very ornamental, turning bronze in autumn and staying on the branches for a long time before finally falling.

As it is very slow growing and fairly narrow, Quercus cerris 'Curly Head' is an ideal choice of oak tree for growing in gardens with very limited space.
