Kingpin® Willow Oak

Selected at Bold Spring Nursery by talented plantsman, Sam Rogers, Kingpin™ is a new clonal Willow Oak that is making waves. Kingpin™ is dominant in every aspect. The foliage is outstanding, lustrous and several shades darker than any other willow oak. Kingpin™ grows with unusual self confidence. The central leader is evident at every age, pointing the way for a crown that maintains an ascending structure. The result is a tree that commands attention at a glance, and is well suited for the wide range of applications demanded of Willow Oak, our toughest native shade tree.
