Soft, 8 to 10-inch leaves are deeply and irregularly dissected to the midrib; feathery and silver-green, their downward habit makes a lacy flounce. In favorable conditions — in good, well-draining soil, some summer water, and a somewhat sheltered position — the tree can become dense over time; it's slow-growing but eminently worth the wait. And, rare as it is, you'll be hard-pressed to find another anywhere near. You'll be providing a public service to plant this interesting oak, unusual in color, texture, and form.
Minimum temperature: -20° F
