Устойчивость к ветру:
A sturdy tree with a broad, spherical, later rounded crown usually with an ascending main trunk with heavy crown branches. The trunk is roughly grooved with long bark plates. Young twigs are greyish and felt-like, angular at the top. The buds have downy hairs and moss-like stipules. The leathery leaves vary in shape, usually elongated to oval. They are rough on the upper side, bare on the underside, and have 4 to 9 shallow to very deep lobes. 'Argenteovariegata' is distinguished from the species in that its leaves have a wide, irregular, cream-coloured edge. Sometimes creamy patches occur or the creamy-white edge extends to the central vein. The leaves remain on the tree until deep into winter. The fruits are the same as those of the species. Sensitive to cracks caused by frost but insensitive to mildew.
