Royalty Among Other Oaks: The Regal Prince® Oak

  • Tall and Columnar Oak
  • Hybrid Vigor Kicks the Growth Rate Up
  • The New Standard For Street Trees
  • Excellent Choice for Wildlife

When it comes to oaks, you want one that you can admire day after day as you watch it grow in your yard. The Regal Prince Oak (Quercus robur x bicolor 'Long') is one of those oaks. With ravishing green foliage with a silvery underside and a unique upright columnar form, this oak will earn its spot in your yard and your admiration.

How did the Regal Prince Oak earn its name? It comes from a lineage of royalty among oaks: the Upright English Oak and the Swamp White Oak.

It's easy to see what makes the Regal Prince Oak stand out among other oaks. It grows tall in an upright pillar-like form. It will grow to be a giant, so choose a spot in your yard carefully. It will reach its full height over the course of decades and does transplant well, though.

The Regal Prince Oak torches the sky with an autumnal blaze once fall arrives. It smolders at a golden yellow for a few weeks before igniting into a rapturous red.

If you love wildlife, the Regal Prince Oak will turn your yard into an amusement park for squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and pollinators. Increase the fun by hanging a bird feeder on a branch and using your binoculars to keep track of what species visit this royal oak.

Most gardeners adore the Regal Prince Oak's ability to thrive in poor soils such as clay and sandy soils. It prefers full sun and will soon shade out what's around it, so plan for a shade garden in the near future. Although, as a more upright oak, it won't drown your entire yard.

This regal tree makes a lovely specimen or an addition to your pastures, although you will want to keep an eye on your acorns if you have cows around.

Order a kingly oak with a flair for the dramatic. The Regal Prince Oak is ready to make your yard its palace. Disclaimer: no crown included.
