    Trying to make some sense of the A. campestre cultivars.

    There seem to be a few around that I don't know. Certainly the list in MotW is no longer complete. Here's what I've come up with that are apparently available, or at least being cultivated somewhere. A '*' means I grow it here. A - means "no description available."

    Acuminatilobum *
    Austriacum
    Carnival *
    Eastleigh Weeping
    Elsrijk
    Fastigiatum
    Green Weeping
    Microphyllum
    Nanum
    Postelense
    Pulverulentum *
    Queen Elizabeth
    Red Shine *
    Royal Ruby
    Schwerinii
    Tuaricum
    William Caldwell
    Zorgvlied

    Lienco Elegans (= leiocarpon?) -
    Anny's Globe -
    Arrends -
    Commodore -
    Geessink -
    Green Column - (= Fastigiatum?)
    Hulber's Elegant -
    Marjolein - ( = Postelense?)
    Miracle Spring *
    Senator -
    Silver Celebration *
    Upsalla -
    Zenta -

    I've tried to get rid of the duplicates by falling back on the most commonly used names.

    Can anyone provide the missing desctiptions?

    Or others available for sale somewhere (or growing in someones garden)?

    Most of these showed up on Florapictures.com with no picture, so that 's not much help.

    Thanks,

    -E

    P.S. One thing that we should try and do in the next WCLoMC is to have a cross reference, so that we can see the cultivars grouped by species and not just purely alphabetical. This will double the size of the book, but well worth it.
