Cutleaf European Beech ( Fagus sylvatica var. Asplenifolia )
Height : 1.5 m - 20 m included Origin : Central Europe Environment : in full sun or partial shade; on deep, fresh, well-drained soils Climate : temperate, mild
Notes : The Cutleaf European Beech is a variety of the more common European Beech. It sports much narrower leaves, deeply lobed. It is more tolerant of lower altitudes than the common Beech, and therefore often planted in low-altitude cities, where it is appreciated for the elegant and uncommon aspect of the leaves. It does not tolerate frost and high excursion temperatures.
