Leaves long-stalked, fan-shaped, with seven or nine prominent veins instead of the usual five; base of leaf wedge-shaped or truncate, not heart-shaped. Of the same type as ‘Laciniatum’, but with the lobes not so long-pointed. Nicholson in Gard. Chron., Vol. 15, 1881, p. 564. There is an example at Kew measuring 50 × 4{3/4} ft, received from Van Volxem’s nurseries in 1879. Another at Westonbirt, Glos., in Silkwood, probably planted at about the same time, measures 75 × 7 ft (1968).
