Has anyone planted hybrid oaks and seen results? I'm interested in adding some for diversity but wanted to see if any of you have had any good/bad experiences. Also, does any site sell hybrid oak acorns? I appreciate any info
I have some schuettes oaks or atleast what I believe are schuettes in their 3rd year doing well. I have crimson spire column oak hybrids. I have a beadles oak growing extremely fast. I plan to try growing a few concordia oak hybrids this year as well. To be honest I'm not convinced any oak is pure anymore, I think everything is a form of a hybrid with something else.
I'm growing 2 types of columnar white oak hybrids; Regal Prince ( col. English Oak X Swamp White Oak) and Crimson Spire (col. English Oak X plain white oak). The Regal Prince has denser branching structure and leaves like a swamp white oak; it is believed to be more resistant to powdery mildew. Attached are some photos to help folks identify these great hybrid white oak trees for screens. 1st photo is a Regal Prince that is around 15-16 mo.
I'm still trying to locate a few regal princes to plant here. I think we have talked before about column oaks, still one of my favorite trees for small spaces with big mast production and tons of varieties!
If you have a menards thats where i have bought them for years.In spring ours have them or if you ask they can order them.I have regal price,bebbs oak,bur x swo and some english mix with bur.I have seen acorns on some at 7 years old.
