One of the fastest growing and truly most magnificent of all oaks; one only needs to visit Kew to see this! My collection from the Caspian Hyrcanian forests, very near Lankaran, S. Azerbaijan. A superb specimen for a large garden or parkland forming a huge rounded crown. The leaves are rather chestnut-like, funnily enough, margined with coarse, triangular teeth.

Quercus dentata 'Carl Ferris Miller'

The Daimyo oak from the Far East has spectacularly outsize foliage, superficially similar in form to our common oak, but many times the size. The twigs are very stout and plants can colour well in autumn, often with reds and oranges. This form, collected in Korea, performs very well in N. Europe. Usually a small to medium sized tree in this country.
