Carpinus betulus is commonly known as 'Hornbeam' and is an extremely popular UK native hedge that displays stunningly bright green foliage with deep veins in spring along with newly formed catkins that turn in to fruit for birds and wildlife. In Autumn/Winter the leaves turn brown/copper but stay on the tree to give adequate cover and shelter for wind and wildlife.
Hornbeam prefers well-drained normal soil, exposed inland or coastal. Carpinus grows at around 1-2 feet per year but can be pruned to a manageable size.
