Species (Eng) Hornbeam
 
 
 

Common Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is a deciduous plant that is similar to beech. The prominently veined elliptical dark green leaves turn yellow-brown in Autumn with the leaves often remaining into Spring.

Hornbeam hedging thrives in most soils including chalk, clay and damp conditions. Being tough and undemanding Hornbeam is happy in either sun or partial shade.

A Hornbeam hedge grows at a fast rate (30-40cm/year) and requires annual trimming in July or August.

Offered as individual hedging plants, semi-mature trees, or as one of the Elveden Instant Hedge™ species.
