Carpinus betulus | Hornbeam

Carpinus betulus or hornbeam can be used for hedges from about 80 cm to 300 cm high. The leaves of Carpinus betulus sprout in mid-April, which is usually a little earlier than the leaves of beech.The autumn color of Carpinus betulus is dark yellow. In winter, some withered leaves remain on the branches only to fall off next year when the plant re-sprouts. These leaves are gray-brown in color and lighter than the withered leaves of beech. The hornbeam hedge tolerates a moister site better than a beech hedge.
