Japanese Hornbeam

The Japanese Hornbeam tree also referred to as Carpinus Laxiflora can grow as tall as 30 ft. This is a very resilient tree that can survive in temperatures as low as -15F. This is another one of the trees, which we have chosen to bonsai. Pictures and information on planting times and techniques used will be posted regularly to this page.
