One of Britain's 'big three' native heritage species, keeping company with the Beech and Oak, and perhaps outstripping both in autumn glory. Our native hornbeam is stately, yet infinitely malleable, making it a favourite for use in hedging, pleaching, or formal clipping into arches, pillars, pyramids, etc. Unrestricted, the species will mature into a magnificent specimen tree with wide spreading lateral branches which provide a delightful dappled light through three seasons. Spring foliage is a fresh uplifting lime green, maturing to an airy mid green in summer, finally phasing to a luminous amber glow in autumn. A deep rooting species which is generally well behaved around paving and foundations.
