'Compacta'

A compact, pyramidal tree to several meters tall, densely branched, the branches descending and drooping near their tips. It arose in France before 1867 and has never been particularly common. Auders & Spicer suggest it is ‘probably not now identifiable’, while Hatch notes that ‘some plants under this name are now considered to be ‘Clarke’, a distinct clone’. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018–2020).
