Quercus coccinea – Scarlet Oak – 3-Gallon


One of the best native oaks for fall color, this tree’s foliage ranges from brownish red to brilliant scarlet in the Fall. In the wild, Scarlet Oak is usually found on dry upland ridges with infertile, rocky soils, and is better adapted to these conditions than its relative, Northern Red Oak (Q. rubra). Oaks have a reputation of being slow-growing, but this applies primarily to the white oak group. Once established and well-cared for, you can expect 1 – 1 1/2’ of growth per year from Scarlet Oak and other members of the red oak group.
