A handsome tree is suitable for many locations. The European Hornbeam has earned the moniker of "ironwood" for its incredible resilience to injury. Hornbeam reminds us to have confidence in our ability to endure and to continue during hard times.
Strength is not this tree's only quality. The muscle-like bark is smooth, ray, and fluted. Its leaves with catkins and drooping clusters of fruit. In autumn, the leaves turn a beautiful yellow-green color. Deciduous. Keep outdoors.
Note: Purchasing a humidity/drip tray is strongly recommended along with the purchase of your bonsai. They help to protect the surface(s) the bonsai is placed on and your bonsai's health.
