|Quercus palustris 'Compacta' nom. illegit.|
Thought to have been developed at Jacques Lombarts's Nursery, Zundert, The Netherlands in the 1950s. It is not known if this name was properly established by Doorenbos. Even if it were, it would be illegitimate since the epithet 'Compacta' is already in use for Q. robur 'Compacta' Hort. ex G. Nicholson (1896). Requires a new name.
A very beautiful tree with low and rounded compact crown with crowded leaves. Widely planted in Europe.
