Quercus coccinea (Scarlet Oak) Details

Commonly known as the Scarlet Oak, this deciduous tree features very colourful autumn foliage. The foliage emerges light green in spring, ages to dark green, then changes to an impressive scarlet red in autumn before falling. Small, yellow-green flowers in spring produce brown acorns in autumn amidst the foliage. This majestic beauty will typically grow to 20 m tall and 10 m wide with a rounded crown. It performs best when planted on a well-drained site in full sun, though it is tolerant of frost, cool climates, heavy soils, and some wind. The Scarlet Oak is widely planted in avenues or grown as a specimen in large gardens and parks with the added advantage of fantastic summer shade.
