An Excellent Landscaping Tree: The Crimson Spire™ Oak

  • Energetic Red Fall Foliage
  • Tall Yet Narrow
  • Excellent Screen
  • Low Maintenance

Imagine pulling up to your home and being greeted by a columnar oak that is blazing red. The Crimson Spire Oak (Quercus alba x robur 'Crimschmidt') can make that dream come true. There are few oaks that look as vivid in autumn.

This fast-growing and robust oak is the perfect marriage of English and White Oaks. It grows faster than most other oaks while it has dense green leaves that are some of the brightest on the market.

The Crimson Spire Oak grows to a medium size and stays narrow as it grows, making it a great choice for a large-scale screen or perimeter planting along your property line. If you want to create a scene worthy of painting, plant your backyard with a dappled mix of oaks, including this red beauty.

Because of its hardy nature and ability to thrive in poor soil, the Crimson Spire Oak is an excellent choice for lining the road to buffer traffic noise and give you and your family a bit more privacy. This tree is also a wonderful way to conserve lateral space while still enjoying a heritage tree.

The Crimson Spire Oak requires little to no care once established. In fact, it's drought resistant and will grow in clay soils. It does prefer full sun to reach its full potential.

This lovely tree is also a great habitat addition to the yard. When you plant one, you'll be providing plenty of places for birds to rest and acorns for squirrels to carry off and bury.

There's a reason the Crimson Spire Oak is a landscaper's go-to for height and privacy. Make your home sweet home a little more inviting and a little sweeter with this stately and majestic tree.
