Carpinus turczaninowii - (Korean / Turczaninow Hornbeam) 


The Korean hornbeam is a much smaller tree than its European cousin, getting around 20-25 feet tall in the ground, but makes a perfect bonsai specimen as it is easily ‘dwarfed’ to less than a couple of feet tall within a bonsai pot

 

Its leaves, at around 3cm in length, are red and purple in the spring, turning green, and then putting on a spectacular show in the autumn with colours of yellow, orange and red.  It doesn’t end there though, as it has one of the most beautiful bare forms over the winter months, so looks stunning all year round

 

It has been a favourite specimen for bonsai growers for a very long time

 

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
