Selected from a batch of chance seedlings collected from the campus of University of Missouri Columbia, this cultivar is a cross between the fastigiata variety of the English Oak and the common Swamp White Oak. The tree grows to quite a large size, with a distinct columnar form and beautiful yellow fall color. It is also very resistant to pests and diseases like borers and powdery mildew, making it a resilient landscaping choice.
