Carpinus betulus (Hornbeam) is a native tree or hedging plant that resembles Beech but is a much smaller tree which spreads with age. Fluted grey bark. The ovate green leaves turn yellow in autumn and then to brown. Makes an excellent native hedge with the leaves remaining until spring.  One of the best hedging plants for heavy soil types as it prefers a heavy wet soil. Also will grow well on chalky soil. Tolerant of shade and moist positions.  

All plants supplied are strong, well established and ready for immediate outdoor planting.
