Carpinus betulus - Hedging Pack

Common Hornbeam Hedge Plants

from From £27.55 (ex. VAT)
( £33.06 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

Ovate, glossy foliage is mid-green and deeply ribbed turning yellow in the autumn. Green catkins appear from late spring followed by clusters of winged fruit. Carpinus betulus is a very useful hedge and when clipped correctly will hold its copper brown leaves for some time when others have fallen, making it ideal for screening purposes. this hedging plant takes well to being trained and is often used for pleaching. The hornbeam hedging will happily grow in a shaded or damp position and is reliably tough. Also, this native hedging is attractive to a great deal of wildlife most prominently the hawfinch and several species of moth. Hornbeam is very similar to Beech hedging - the main differences are that the leaves have deeper veins and the planting conditions can be slightly damper.
