Excellent choice for a bold display of seasonal color. We pay special attention to the matter of developing a proper and enduring root system for these trees.
Canopy Spread: Approximates OA height at maturity
More upright than spreading as a juvenile. Prune to maintain proper branch structure and eliminate weak or included attachments.
Soil PH should be close to neutral. Nutrient deficiencies may exist when PH is too high.
Reasonably drought tolerant once established
Dependable in 9b (May go to 9a in micro-climates)
Spectacular winter color when most other flowering trees are dormant or largely non-descript.
