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. In bonsai cultivation the tree prefers a little protection from the sun in summer and will thrive in very light shade.

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.
