    Dax,

    I think that the correct name for this tree is 'Born's Gracious'. I found one this summer in a nursery in western Ma and added it to my garden. I love the color of the deeply cut leavs.

    Well, I'm stumped Ed. Maybe the brilliant folks here can iron this wrinkle-free.

    That seems likely - 'Born's Gracious' gets quite a lot of google hits, whereas 'Boris Graciosa' turns up nothing but this thread. My guess would be an OCR scanning error.

    Example with 'Born's Gracious':
