Shooting Star Northern Pin Oak has dark green foliage which emerges brick red in spring. The spiny lobed leaves turn an outstanding brick red in the fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The furrowed gray bark and silver branches add an interesting dimension to the landscape.
