This gorgeous cultivar is a modern take on a landscape classic. Desirable Sweetspire® Oak (Quercus robur x alba 'JFS-KW1QX') stays slim and lean…with plenty of interest year-round!

The attractive lobed foliage remains mildew-free in summer and burnishes to a beautiful rustic red for fall color. Upright sweeping branch structure of Sweetspire truly draws the eye.

Planting and Application:

With wide crotch angles, Sweetspire Oak easily rides through fierce winds and resists storm damage. You'll also love how the leaves fall cleanly from the tree late in the season for easy cleanup.

  • As you might imagine, Streetspire Oak makes an excellent choice to include in street plantings. Alternate with other columnar trees like Shawnee Brave Bald Cypress and Armstrong Maple for biodiverse approach that protects your overall investment
  • Try a pair of these stately Oak trees on either side of your front entryway. No one ever regrets planting a dignified Oak tree, after all!
  • Oaks grow surprisingly quickly as young trees. Be sure to use symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster in the planting hole for life-long support of the tiny feeder roots.
  • Streetspire Oak is a rugged, durable shade tree that fits beautifully in small space gardens. It will add to your property value and can easily be used to create an effective privacy screen.
  • Repeat the use of this stunning selection in mixed plantings, as well. Their rusty red fall color and arresting profile will make your guests stop and stare!

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Achieve the best performance in a well-drained planting site with rich soil. We highly recommend that you add a three-inch layer of mulch and spread it out to several feet past the canopy; pulling it back from touching the trunk.

  • Plant Streetspire Oak in full sun with at least six hours of light a day. Provide an even schedule of supplemental water to keep them happy, healthy and stress-free.
  • Get expert advice from planting to watering from the NatureHills.com Horticulture team. You'll feel proud of your choice to work with NatureHills.com on professional-grade landscape materials.
  • In early spring, prune to correct shape if needed. Luckily, Streetspire Oak features great genetics and should rarely need much corrective action.
