Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigata’ Upright Hornbeam R/B 20-25cm


Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus, is a large deciduous tree, similar to beech. It’s a popular choice for hedging, and supports a wide variety of wildlife. Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’ is a particularly lovely variety. Its form is neater and denser than the species, and the leaves have more of a glossy sheen. Young plants grow quickly, producing a formal, almost triangular shape. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

For best results, grow Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’ in moist but well-drained soil, perfect for screening or as a focal point in a garden.
