Green hedge with dark yellow leaves in autumn. This variant retains its leafs during the winter. By trimming this hedge every year the brown leaves remain until late winter. The decomposed leaves are a very good soil improvement. Hornbeams can be planted in any soil. Hornbeams have pointed leaf buds from which beautifully veined, simple leaves appear. For a nice compact hedge preferably trim at the end of May and end of August.
IMPORTANT: Does not tolerate closed paving.
