origin, born during the 18th centuty in Essex (Turner's nurseries);
propagation only by grafting; cultivar 'pseudo-turneri '(also known under
other names : Q.austriaca sempervirens, Q.pseudo-turneri
Schneid. and Q.aizoon Koehne) is the most often cultivated, with
leaves a little larger than the type;
-- For A.Camus, one can separate 2 species depending on whether ilex dominates robur or vice versa :
1/ ilex > robur
= x turneri Willd. 1899
2/ ilex < robur
= x pseudoturneri C.K.Schneider 1904
= turneri var. pseudoturneri Elwes and Henry 1910
= x aizoon Koehne 1904
-- For Govaerts & Frodin (1998) it is quite different : they distinguish :
1/ Q.x turneri Willd.
= Q.'Turneri' (the species described above)
2/ Q.x turneri A.DC
= Q.x hispanica Lam.
= Q.x turneri var. pseudoturneri (C.K.Schneid.) Elwes and Henry
