Quercus robur ‘Concordia’

April 14, 2012

Concordia English OakThe Golden English Oak is one of those trees that I have mixed feelings about. In the spring, it is absolutely stunning. However by mid summer it is lost in green foliage. Some authorities say it should be sited in part shade as the leaves will scorch.. We haven’t found this to be the case here in NC. The tree can look a bit awkward in youth but it is worth the training for that brilliant yellow spring color. Recently I have obtained Quercus rubra ‘aurea’ and we will be watching how the very large brilliant yellow leaves of this tree hold up this summer.
