+Crataegomespilus 'Jules d'Asnieres'

+Crataegomespilus is the generic name applied to graft-chimeras between the genera Crataegus and Mespilus. It should not be confused with ×Crataemespilus, which is applied to sexual hybrids between those genera, nor with Chamaemespilus which is a segregate genus or subgenus of Sorbus.

+Crataegomespilus dardarii originated from Mespilus germanica grafted onto a rootstock of Crataegus monogyna.[2] Foliage detail.
