We are specialists in evergreen plants and we offer the widest possible range of quality species. Did you know that there are evergreen oaks? Turner’s oak is one example, probably the only oak suitable for our climate (zone 6). It is a cross between quercus ilex and quercus robur.

Pseudoturneri is a later variety of Turners oak. Its leaves are very similar to common oak, mid green, shallowly lobed and partly glossy. Compared to its hybrid parent it is a little smaller, hardier, and holds its leaves more reliably over the winter. Still, some leaves may fall down at the end of winter to be substituted with new ones. The original hybrid often lost majority of leaves already when the first major frosts came.

This variety is commonly cultivated as a large shrub rather than a tree. Naturally it is spreading with a rounded crown but thanks to its slower growth it can easily be kept smaller by pruning. Spring pruning will encourage new growth, summer pruning in mid to end July is recommended for shaping.

Oaks like deep, fertile, moist soil. Well established plants withstand water-logging. It is partly lime-tolerant. If it is situated in a sheltered location it will remain evergreen all winter. Provide extra watering in frost-free periods in winter to prevent from drying out before the ground gets frozen. Hardy to about -24°C (USDA zone 6).
