Quercus coccinea Fthd 175-200cm (Y)



The Scarlet Oak which grows up to 20m (70ft) is found in in the hills and mountains of North America on lime-free soils, but has been quite widely planted in parks and gardens.  A key attraction to this deciduous tree is that the leaves – which are about 15cms (6”) in length and glossy and dark green in summer – turn a bright red in Autumn about 5 to 6 weeks before falling.  Acorns are small and round, and ripen in October.
