Quercus robur 'Purpurea' (Purple English Oak)

Quercus robur 'Purpurea' is a rare English oak notable for its deep purple foliage in spring. As the season progresses the foliage gradually transitions to rich green shades with a distinctive purple hue. Plants are slower growing than the species. At maturity, the purple English oak will be smaller than the species but still a very large tree.
