Hop Hornbeam (Ostrya Carpinifolia)

Hop Hornbeam (Ostrya Carpinifolia) trees have a very unusual appearance in the summer when a crown of dark good looking foliage is mixed with white fruit clusters which are near to 5cm broad cylindric bunches of bladders like a big hop fruit. A good woodland tree, it will stand a good deal of shade as well as full sun.  This tree is native to Europe and Asia Minor, including southern Britain. Hop Hornbeam (Ostrya Carpinifolia) is a very tough contender, thriving in most conditions. This pretty tree needs space to reach its full potential, so is best planted in large gardens and parkland with the space to accommodate this interesting tree.  At full maturity its height is between 12-17 metres. Ostrya are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species. Other Hornbeam tress we offer can be found here 

Ultimate height 15 meters


Good well drained soil in full sun but can tolerate part shade
