We’ve had a few complaints from customers thinking we sent them white oak instead of a hybrid Bimundors oak, and we totally understand why they think we made a mistake, because the two can look almost identical! Bimundors oak is a cross between English oak (Quercus robur) and our native white oak, (Quercus alba) which look very similar to begin with. These two oaks are so much alike, that we don’t think the trees themselves can tell each other apart.
If they are so much like white oaks, then why not just get white oak? True white oaks are still great, and we choose from nothing but the best, but open grown Bimundors oaks seems to drop more consistently and at a younger age. We also like the fact that many of them do have brilliant colors in the fall. We’ve narrowed our parents down to a few trees: one of them lacks the brilliant fall color, but has the biggest “white oak” acorns you’ve ever seen. Another parent tree has beautiful red to purple fall color, and drops loads of smallish acorns. Most importantly, all of the parent trees began producing acorns before reaching a diameter of six inches!
