Etymology
Named by the originator, André Charlier, after the orthodox monastery Sveti Nahoum near the lake and city of Ochrid in Macedonia, former Republic of Yugoslavia.
Description
A form selected for its vigorous large green leaves and fast growth. Leaves up to 14.5 × 7 cm, green and rough above, paler beneath, with few stellate hairs on both sides, base asymmetrical shortly attenuate to subcordate. Petiole 5 - 17 mm. Originated in 1972 from seed collected at Sveti Nahoum, Macedonia. The 36 year old plant has reached 14 × 4 m of quite narrow growth, which may be as a result of the narrow space at the growing site.
