The tree is a hybrid between the Common Whitebeam and the Grey-leaved Whitebeam;

It was first found by Dr Tim Rich, Ashley Robertson and Libby Houston whilst studying whitebeams in the Avon Gorge in 2004.

It has only so far been confirmed for the Avon Gorge in Bristol, but may occur locally in South-west England where the parents grow together.
