American Hornbeam

American Hornbeam makes a great addition to any shady area wherever a small tree or large shrub is needed!  With year round interest, new leaves emerge crimson to green in the spring, become a deep green in the summer, and then change to lovely fall colors of yellow, red and orange.  Inconspicuous flowers and small, light brown nutlets also decorate this handsome tree.  In the winter, the American Hornbeam will display its striking, deeply rippled, silver-like bark, resembling strong, muscles.  Hornbeams are known for their very tough wood and are used to make small items such as golf clubs, tool handles and mallets.  Plant your American Hornbeam as a specimen tree or add as a natural landscape and enjoy viewing the wildlife it attracts.  At maturity, expect your tree to reach 20’-35’ in height with the same spread.  Find a part shade to full shade area making sure your soil is moist, organically rich and acidic.  Hardiness Zones 3-9
