Hornbeam Hedge - Carpinus betulus - (200/225cm)


Hornbeam is known to be a semi-evergreen species, as it clings on to its leaves through wintertime, turning into deep autumnal colours. It also loves to showcase pretty, little green catkins in the late spring (through to autumn), which then turn into fruits which many species of wildlife love to enjoy. The name Hornbeam originally comes from an Old English saying, meaning hard tree, which is exactly what the Hornbeam is- resilient and durable.

It is the perfect formal feature for any garden and can easily be combine with other types of native hedging to add a bit of a mixture to your Hornbeam hedging is also compared with its similarities to the Beech plant, however, Hornbeam is that little bit different with its leaves having deeper veins and serrated edges.
