Laburnum alpinum 'Quercifolia' is a very rare small tree with unusual, cut oak-like green summer leaves and short racemes of vibrant yellow flower in summer. It gradually develops into a fairly upright and compact little tree.

Flowers best in a position with plenty of sun and we find it prefers to be sheltered from strong winds here in Derbyshire for a longer lasting flower display.


  • Position: Full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Flowering Period: May - June.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Laburnum alpinum 'Quercifolia'  grows to be a small, upright tree.
    • Height: up to 4 - 5 m (13 - 16 ft).
    • Spread: 2.5 - 3 m (8 - 10 ft).
  • Notes: All parts of Laburnum alpinum 'Quercifolia', including the flowers and seed pods are toxic and should not be eaten! 
  • Please be aware that this plant should be fairly easy to grow however a huge amount of our time has gone into propagating these very few plants and they need to be looked after properly. As a result we recommend it for experienced gardeners only and this plant is not covered by our guarantee.
