Carpinus betulus, or Hornbeam, is a deciduous, elegant tree with good autumn colour. The mid-green leaves are toothed, and both yellow male and greenish female catkins are borne in spring. Hornbeam an be grown as a specimen tree, where it will reach heights of 40ft+, or in a woodland setting. It is also ideal for pleaching, and if grown as a pleached hedge, will retain its brown leaves throughout winter. Hornbeam is suitable for heavy, wet soils.

 

The catalogue below is our full range available during the bareroot season from November - March, either in stock in the nursery or, in the case of the larger sizes, available to order. Over the summer we stock a smaller range of potted trees.
