Available Autumn 2017 - A rare selection, newly introduced to the United Kingdom from Belgium, Carpinus caroliniana 'Sentinel Dries' has dark green leaves with eye-catching dark red, yellow and orange autumn colours.

These colours appear darker than those of the classic Carpinus caroliniana and seem to start with a mottling on the leaf before colouring up fully. A good tree for autumn colour!
