Pendula' isn't as small as many believe, and it quickly becomes a decent-sized tree which is invaluable at casting summer shade. The second big attraction is the way the leaves flare yellow and then orange before they fall in the autumn. If you have room for two hornbeams, 'Fastigiata' makes a fine contrast with its shape like a gigantic aerial egg, with a thick middle tapering up to point. They grow on any soil, but best of all on heavy clay.
