Product information "Common hornbeam (125 cm)"

European hornbeam is a densely branched, robust tree that can grow up to 4 m high (older specimens are higher). It requires a warm climate for good growth. Carpinus betulus is summer green with very early budding. The hornbeam tolerates pruning well, which is why it can also be grown as a hedge plant. It has also been used in landscape gardening for topiaries. Unlike the common beech, it is not vulnerable to the mealybug infestations. Carpinus betulus is a shade-loving tree that tolerates almost all soils; however it prefers moderate soil fertility and moisture. Up to a certain size, it can also be grown in pots. It has a shallow, wide-spreading root system and is marked by the production of stump sprouts after being cut back.
