Nursery Westhof, ‘s-Heer Arendskerke (NL), 1949
This rapid-growing cultivar has a sturdy and regular crown and a straight trunk. Eventual spread of the crown circa 15 m. The bark is grey and rather smooth, the young twigs turn from light green to grey green and have striking lenticels. The large, pinnate and shiny leaf consists of 9 - 11 leaflets, circa 10 cm long and 5 cm wide. It appears only late in spring, so a late night frost cannot damage it. After an inconspicuous inflorescence, fruits only rarely appear. 'Westhof's Glorie' has a neutral brown-yellow autumn colouring. It forms a heavy pen-root which branches out strongly creating a solid anchoring. Therefore the tree is well resistant to wind. It is an extremely healthy selection that prospers best in open green verges and in not too dry a soil.
