Carpinus Betulus

European Hornbeam


Broadly spreading deciduous tree. Holds onto its leaves during winter, dropping them just before attractive new spring foliage appears. Popular for formal trimmed hedges, but also makes a lovely specimen tree. It is an extremely hardy tree, making it a good choice for exposed conditions.
