Evergreen Oak Tree | Quercus Ilex

A Majestic Oak tree

The Highlights

    • A wonderful choice for year-round interest in your garden
    • Dark-green, glossy foliage similar to that of a holly tree gives its common name Holly Oak
    • The spiny evergreen leaves provide a brilliant foil for other plants
    • Young green autumn acorns adorn this Holly Oak and mature to a dark red before falling
    • These acorns are popular with wildlife such as squirrels, whilst the spring catkins are visited by bees and the evergreen canopy provides shelter to birds
    • Eventually growing into a large, rounded tree, this Quercus Ilex grows to 12x8m
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
