Japanese Hornbeam

 Carpinus japonica

The popular Japanese hornbeam has beautiful distinctive foliage, large ornamental hanging fruit and light colored bark. The leaves turn clear yellow in autumn and suddenly drop. Fruit pods develop in spring, even on young specimens, and have a reddish blush during the summer. They persist until autumn when they turn tan and often last through the winter. The vigor of these seedlings is outstanding and trunks will soon thicken to make fine individual specimens. The roots quickly develop a fibrous root system. A great species for shohin bonsai. Create your own miniature Japanese hornbeam forest.
