Salfast Oak

96-08     Quercus robur var. salicifolia × Q. robur ‘Fastigiata’, or ‘Salfast’ oak, is a first generation (F1) hybrid of two oak selections. One parent gives it leaves with some having almost no teeth of lobes, while the other gives it its narrow, upright habit. These trees were propagated from seed taken from the fine willow-leafed oak specimen at the Morton Arboretum, where the fastigiate (upright) male parent grows nearby.
