Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’
An exceptional screening or hedging plant for cool climates where other varieties struggle, Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’ is as at home in a classic old-world garden as it is in a contemporary setting. Growing to a neat 6m high by 4m wide, this small tree can be clipped and shaped to all manner of forms to suit the landscape. Fine, dark green foliage provides a dense screen even when clipped to a narrow hedge and in Autumn foliage turns to golden yellow. In Winter the intricate fine branching provides interest. Moderate growth rate, adaptability to sun and part shade and dry tolerance once established make this a very attractive variety.
