Q. robur var. dauvessii
Ornamental weeping form attaining 10-15 (20) m in height and 7 - 15 m in breadth. The branches grow somewhat away from the trunk and the twigs are very pendulous. They sometimes grow 2 m in length per year and touch the ground. The bark is dark grey, later grooved. Young twigs are reddish-brown. The variable leaves are obovate to elongated oval, 5 - 14 cm long and 4 - 8 cm wide, with 3 to 5 pairs of blunt lobes. The foliage is often densely grouped at the end of the twigs. The leaves emerge brownish-red in the spring. They do not remain on the tree for long in the winter, which produces a pronounced winter silhouette. The ovoid acorns are grouped in twos to sixes and are a maximum of one-third enclosed in the cupule; the latter is covered with small, triangular, contiguous scales. Very suitable as an arbour tree.
