A selection introduced by Synnestvedt Nursery of Illinois in 1967, originally found in the collections of the Morton Arboretum. Foliage is a glossy, lustrous green, hence its name. Matures at 10-12' tall and 8-10' wide. Flowers and fruit of the species. Authors note: the foliage on this dentatum has withstood the most brutal of heat and drought conditions without showing any signs of spotting or scorch and we have experienced such an abundance of fruit that the branches were literally weighted to the ground. An extremely durable yet attractive plant but overlooked because of its ultimate size.
