Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus, is a large deciduous tree, similar to beech. It's a popular choice for hedging, and supports a wide variety of wildlife. Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata' is a particularly lovely variety. Its form is neater and denser than the species, and the leaves have more of a glossy sheen. Young plantsgrow quickly, producing a formal, almost triangular shape. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
For best results, grow Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata' in moist but well-drained soil, either as a focal point in a large garden or as part of a formal hedge.
