A × pubescens Tausch

A group-name for hybrids between A. glutinosa and A. incana, which are found fairly commonly where the two species meet. According to P. W. Ball in Flora Europaea, Vol. 1 (1964), such hybrids are usually characterised by downy young growths, leaves downy beneath, at least on the veins, blunt or shortly acuminate at the apex, and the female catkins shortly stalked (in the first parent they are stalked and in the second sessile).
