Carpinus betulus ‘Frans Fontaine’

"Common Hornbeam"

Common Name

"Common Hornbeam"


Medium. This selection keeps its narrow upright form into maturity - a specimen of over 9m in height measures just 3m in spread. Use this form where a fastigiate habit is required rather than Carpinus betulus Fastigiata. Makes a great avenue where a long-lived quality tree is required and space limited.
