Description

Hornbeam (carpinus betulus) hedging plants are deciduous, hardy native plants, excellent for exposed areas.  Hornbeam is good for those boggy, wet sites that no other plants can survive.  They will tolerate waterlogging, but only if it drains away.  Like Beech, Hornbeam will keep its leaves in the winter, which will provide screening, and privacy.  Hornbeam can be hard pruned and bounce back with even a denser growth.  

Hornbeam is native to the whole of the UK and has become more popular than Beech in the last few years.  Its green oval leaves are similar to Beech, but are a rougher to the touch, and its veins are more prominent.

Where to Plant

Carpinus betulus is easy to grow, and is often used as hedgerow plants.  They can also be used as specimen garden tree, coppicing, pleeching, country and farmland areas and windbreak.  Plant Hornbeam 3-4 per metre for single row hedge, or 5-7 double staggered row for denser hedging.
