A fairly upright form of Whitebeam.
Introduced into general nursery cultivation in the early 1920s, this urban clone has ascending branches and is well equipped to cope with the rigours of reflected heat and light common to developed areas.
Although it is not as stunning in the spring as ‘Lutescens’ it will keep going for longer in the late summer and autumn.
This medium size tree is conical when young, becoming broadly oval at maturity.
The large leaves are dark green on top, with silver-white undersides.
It has the white flowers and red fruits characteristic of the species, and is a good choice for parks, streets and avenues.
Mature height: 10-15m
