Carpinus betulus Common Hornbeam R/B 16-18cm
The common hornbeam, with its grey/green smooth bark and fluted trunk is a wonderful, stately, rounded native tree. Ovate, glossy foliage is mid-green and deeply ribbed turning yellow in the autumn. Green catkins appear from late spring followed by clusters of winged fruit. Carpinus betulus is a very useful tree, it makes a good hedge and when clipped correctly will hold its brown leaves for some time when others have fallen, making it ideal for screening purposes.
