Reaching a height of 75 feet or more with a 25-foot spread, silk oak’s light, ferny, grey-green leaves, silvery beneath, are accented by large clusters of bright yellow-orange flowers in spring. A great quantity of leaves fall in the spring immediately preceding the emergence of new growth, and leaves also fall sporadically throughout the year. Black, leathery seed capsules follow the flowers.
