Lacking hairs smooth. glabrescent Becoming hairless.
hybrid
Plant originating from the cross-fertilisation of genetically distinct individuals (e.g. two species or two subspecies).

synonym
(syn.) (botanical) An alternative or former name for a taxon usually considered to be invalid (often given in brackets). Synonyms arise when a taxon has been described more than once (the prior name usually being the one accepted as correct) or if an article of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature has been contravened requiring the publishing of a new name. Developments in taxonomic thought may be reflected in an increasing list of synonyms as generic or specific concepts change over time.

Bean

A deciduous tree, which will probably ultimately attain a height of 50 ft and upwards; young branchlets minutely downy. Leaves 3 to 512 in. wide, about three-fourths as long, five-lobed, heart-shaped at the base, dark green and shining above, paler and downy beneath, becoming glabrous later except for tufts in the axils of the veins; lobes ovate, with a long apex. Flowers in erect, corymbose panicles, 2 to 4 in. long. Fruits downy; keys 114 in. long; wings 13 in. wide, almost horizontal.

A maple of garden origin with an obvious affinity to A. campestre, especially in the five-lobed leaf having milky sap in the stalk and in the downy horizontally-spreading keys. The leaves, however, are larger, and the lobes more angular. It is probably a hybrid between that species and either A. cappadocicum or A. lobelii. There are two specimens at Kew, planted in 1871, one 55 × 612 ft and the other slightly smaller (1965); at Westonbirt, Glos., planted 1929, it is 38 ft high; and at the Glasnevin Botanic Garden, Dublin, 45 × 434 ft (1966).

From the Supplement (Vol. V)

In the first printing the synonym was incomplete. It should read: A. neglectum Lange, not Hoffmannseg.

specimens: Kew, between Temperate House and Lake, pl. 1906, 56 × 512 ft (1979); Winkworth Arboretum, Surrey, 46 × 514 ft (1983); Westonbirt, Glos., pl. 1929, 52 × 612 ft at 2 ft (1982); Spetchley Park, Worcs., 60 × 434 ft (1981); Thorp Perrow, Bedale, Yorks., 46 × 434 ft (1981); Abbeyleix, Co. Laois, Eire, 80 × 634 ft (1985).
