A handsome tree suitable for many locations. The European Hornbeam has earned the moniker of "ironwood" for its incredibly resilience to injury. Hornbeam reminds us to have confidence in our ability to endure and to continue on during hard times.
Strength is not this trees 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.
