The Kindred Spirit Oak is an exceptional columnar Oak that displays the gorgeous leaves of an Oak tree up close, and in a smaller vertical narrow form to fit into narrow places. It is a great tree that is hard-to-find, and must be appreciated up close. The Kindred Spirit is cold hardy and generally drought tolerant, and is just a fascinating tree for next to a walkway, driveway, or just close by to be appreciated up close by tree aficionados. You will be fascinated by Kindred Spirit Oak, and it may just make you smile! They hold onto their leaves late into the fall offering privacy and beauty. The leaves in the spring and the summer are dark green with a beautiful silver underside which is displayed on a windy day. One gets to see what is usually at the top of large Oak trees right up close and personal. Highly recommended!
