The hornbeam is an attractive tree in winter. A pyramidal hornbeam, is a splendid form which makes a fine specimen tree of moderate size but great distinction. It is usually seen grown on a clean stem of 2m, from which the very shapely crown grows as a tall ovoid. It has all the good features of the hornbeam and a strikingly dense, formal shape that makes it ideal for short avenues and groups.
Recommended: Plant a tree for the Jubilee. Fastigiate hornbeam, a tear drop shape tree with good autumn colours of yellow and orange. It will retain most of its leaves through winter. Eventual height 10-15 meters.
