Similar in growth to Carpinus betulus. The leaves of Hornbeam ‘Rockhampton Red’ turn from green to bright red and orange from late September, the colours persisting until November when the leaves turn to nut brown with many of them being retained in winter. Elegantly shaped large tree with ribbed green leaves and a smooth, muscly trunk covered in grey bark. Great as a specimen tree, for pleaching, topiary or even as a very special hedge! Height and spread to 6m x 4m in 10 years. Any soil or position. Good for wildlife. British native.
