oak grove

Botanical Interest: 

For many people, the oak is the quintessential tree. Oak trees are large, long-lived, disease-resistant and beautiful. In this naturalistic woodland setting, you’ll find many species and hybrid oaks.

Especially for Gardeners: 

Though oaks are uncommon in Colorado, these varieties grow well in our climate and are good choices for gardeners in this region. Denver Botanic Gardens has made a commitment to conserving the germplasm of this very large and important genus by joining the multi-institutional Quercus (Oak) Collection Consortium of the North American Plant Collections Consortium (NAPCC).
