• Carpinus japonica Japanese Hornbeam Tree Seeds

    Carpinus japonica
    Japanese Hornbeam

    Native to Japan the Japanese Hornbeam has heavily veined leaves with pointed tips that look as fine as a landscape painting. Delicately narrow leaves are accented with nice flowers in spring and smooth light gray bark. Fall color is faintly orange turning to yellow that stands out in the landscape. The twisted branches give this tree a spectacular look through winter well worth groing. Bonsai enthusiasts grow this tree for the upright trunk and ancient look. Keep pruned for Bonsai culture. Grows to 25 feet if grown as a standard tree. Moderately drought-tolerant.
