Carpinus betulus.
Native to the U.K carpinus is a principle woodland species that can make a very big and majestic tree which is exactly what this beautiful bonsai does. In bonsai cultivation the tree prefers a little protection from the sun in summer and will thrive in very light shade.
Completely hardy in the U.K Hornbeam is a very simple and robust tree that is rewarding to care for and train as bonsai. Hornbeam does not need to be re-potted quite as often as other deciduous varieties. Throughout summer regularly remove large leaves and those that either hang down or grow inwards.

A cracking little hornbeam with all the basics in place and a great nebari. One of the easiest trees to keep as bonsai and very easy to develop into impressive bonsai.
