    This nice old Fagus sylvatica 'Aspleniifolia', fern-leaf beech, is in the Shakespeare Garden in Stanley Park. I do not know its connection to Shakespeare. The area under the tree is around 20 meters in diameter or a bit more, a nice place to hide out, which nobody really seems to do.

    Spelling is 'Aspleniifolia'. Other cultivars of var. heterophylla include 'Incisa' and 'Quercifolia'.

    @Acerholic, that source continues: "The garden is a diverse arboretum that includes trees mentioned in his plays and poems."
    @Ron B, thanks for the "ii"s. I have fixed the spelling. I looked at the name several times before typing it, should have copied it.
