October 2013: A Better Oak Option

“What captured my attention was Pacific Brilliance’s pin oak leaf when it was tender. It featured a white pubescence which gave the appearance of frost on the leaf. It quickly went away as the leaf matured and turned a shiny, dark green with a light green underside.”
