Our own introduction, this fast growing pin oak has flaming-scarlet autumn colours. Shiny, quite slender, typical oak foliage in summer. It will grow on most soils but colours much better in acid soil. The autumn colour here in our arboretum on a pH of 6.5 is quite exceptional.
A smashing tree for autumn colour which has been selected by us and after Suzette Vernon, one of the nursery owners.
