A giant of an oak from North America, capable of topping 30m (100ft), though you will have to wait decades for it to get that high. The leaves are greenish on the top side with a bluish tinge below, but they really flare up in the autumn when they turn red before falling. A good alternative for part shade is the variety 'Aurea' which grows half as high, with yellow spring leaves. It has been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.
