Quercus 'Sebrena' Jablonski Journ. Int. Oak Soc., 21: 42 (2010) Cultivar name has been accepted as Registered
Etymology
Named by the originator, André Charlier, after the operatic soprano Sebrena Gurinak.
Description
A form selected for its beautiful leaves and slow and upright growth. A seedling of Quercus ilex 'Fordii' and most possibly a hybrid with Quercus pubescens Willd. (= Quercus ×albescens Rouy ex Camus). Leaves up to 7 × 3 cm, semi-deciduous, dark-green above, paler below, with very few stellate hairs above and densely hairy beneath, slightly undulate margin, base cuneate-subcordate. Petiole 3 - 6 mm. Originated around 1972, from seed of Quercus ilex 'Fordii' growing at Arboretum Rond Chêne, Esneux. Out of the batch of seedlings, this one was selected for its uniqueness. Another seedling resembled Quercus ×turneri Willd., whilst others have the habit of Quercus ilex 'Fordii'. The 37 year old plant has reached only 4 × 1 m.
