Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata'

  • Common Name: Hornbeam
  • From

    £209.25 ex-VAT

A form of our native hornbeam differing mainly in its tightly ascending branching habit, which lends strong architectural structure to a landscape. The tree also offers an airy spring foliage and rich honey autumn tones, as consistent with the species. As a young tree, 'Fastigiata' is very narrow and columnar, but broadens significantly with age. The species is ideal for clay or chalky soils. Suitable and effective for wide sweeping avenues but not as a street tree due to its wide ultimate spread. Slow to moderate growth rate. Rooting habit is generally deep and not notably problematic.
