English Hornbeam Bonsai Material
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 hand down or grow inwards.

A nice hornbeam with all the basics in place. There is a small cut in the top that can be hollowed out and will callous over quickly. Now established in this pot for two years. Ready for a little styling work over next winter.
