Quercus frainetto - Hungarian Oak

Hungarian Oak

From the Balkans, where it can become a truly enormous tree, Quercus frainetto grows to a more moderate size in our climate; it is nevertheless a large, fast-growing tree, deciduous, with a rounded, half-open crown. The deep green leaves are large, up to 10”/25cm long; they are deeply lobed, often with the lobes further divided. The leaves turn yellowish brown in autumn. Unobtrusive green catkins are borne in May, and the female flowers are followed by acorns in hairy cups, borne in clusters of two to five. The Hungarian oak is picky about soil; it will not tolerate lime, and likes a rich, heavy soil, but it will tolerate occasional water-logging and summer drought. A good specimen tree in the right conditions.
