Description:

 

Similar in appearance to beech, hornbeam makes a superb specimen tree or hedging plant. Grown as a tree, it has a pyramidal shape that later becomes more rounded. As a formal hedge it requires clipping once a year in mid to late summer to keep it looking tidy. Although it is deciduous, it retains its coppery dead leaves throughout the winter so it remains an effective screen. Green catkins appear in spring and winged nuts develop in autumn.

    I was not sure about ordering bare root plants on-line but what was described on their website is what I got. Good plants that were better price than buying locally. I would recommend to anyone, in fact I already have to a colleague looking for a new hedge!
