CARPINUS (HORNBEAM) as a Hedgeplant

(Deciduous)

Carpinus betulus, up to 10 ft. Good bright green leaves, prominently veined, and pointed. A tree when allowed to grow naturally. Plant in winter 1 ft. apart, or in double staggered rows, leaving 9 in. between the rows and 1-½ ft. between the plants in each row. Clip lightly in July when young and, once the hedge is established, fairly drastically in August.
