Description Plant Care Q & A Suggested Sundries Description

Carpinus betulus is an excellent choice for hedging and pleaching.  It clips beautifully and although deciduous will hold onto some leaves during winter.  Leaves turn a buttery golden-yellow in the autumn and emerge a vibrant green in spring.  It's hardy and robust too, tolerating poor planting conditions if necessary.  Carpinus betulus is a native tree found predominantly in the south of England, it boasts vibrant green, ribbed leaves with fine toothed edges and although it is generally of a conical habit, it is frequently trained into pleached trees, box heads and other forms.  We're able to offer these established espalier plants which have been specially trained onto frames, giving an instant screening solution.

Plant Care

Will tolerate all soil types and prefers sun - partial shade.
