NATIVE FLAME AMERICAN HORNBEAM
American Hornbeams are tough, adaptable trees and this variety holds true to the species. It was chosen for its upright growth, reliable form, and especially, for its bright red fall color. Tolerant of periodic flooding and slightly acidic soils. A tenacious tree for urban situations, the non-aggressive roots allow for planting near hardscapes. Bark is smooth, fluted, bluish-gray, adding winter interest in the landscape. Catkins appear in spring with nutlets following in October.
