Carpinus betulus ‘ Variegata


1c. Carpinus betulus ‘ Variegata  

C. betulus var. variegata Lodd. ex Loudon, Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum   3: 2005 ( Loudon 1838). – C. betulus   f. variegata (Lodd. ex Loudon) H.J.P.Winkl., Das Pflanzenreich IV 61 (Heft 19): 31 ( Winkler 1904). – Original citation: No detailed data given. – Type: not localized. – Note: this is a cultivar with variegated leaves from Loddiges’ plant catalogue ( Loddiges 1836). Winkler cites neither Loudon nor Loddiges (1836) but Dippel (1891: 140), and according to Art. 41.4. ( McNeill et al. 2012), his name should be considered as a new combination as he is dealing with the same cultivar. The color of the variegation is unknown, as Loudon does not mention it. Dippel (1891: 149) recognizes only a single variegated cultivar, irrespective from the color of the variegation, while Schneider (1904) recognizes a forma albovariegata and a forma aureovariegata.
