Overview

The Scarlet Oak grows in zones 4-9.
Aptly named, the scarlet oak is a parade of red throughout the seasons. In the early spring, new leaves unfurl with a red hue. The vibrant red fall display is truly magnificent. And those red leaves often hang on through the first snow, giving winter a touch of much-needed color. The inner bark of the scarlet oak is even red.
