Quercus ellipsoidalis ‘Hemelrijk’ (Northern Pin Oak). This oak has sharply divided leaves, almost holly-shaped, flushed with pink in spring and turning a rich, glossy green. The bark is dark grey. In autumn the leaves turn bright red. The dead, brown leaves remain on the tree until they are pushed off by the new leaf buds in the spring.


They are fully to frost hardy, and grow in sun or semi-shade in deep, well drained soil.
