The European Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) should find a place of prominence in every garden or landscape. A medium sized oval to columnar tree with uniform proportions can easily function as a specimen tree, in groupings, as a screen, in the understory, or as a magnificent hedge. Its steel gray, smooth sinewy bark is great to view in the winter season. Deep green leaves may turn golden yellow, but spectacular fall color is rare.
