A sought after and slow growing selection of hornbeam, Carpinus betulus 'Globus' grows into a distinctive,  tear-shaped small tree. The leaves are dark green in spring, summer and turn a rich mustard-yellow in autumn. The architectural habit makes this tree handsome even in the depths of winter without a leaf on it!

Carpinus betulus 'Globus'  is a very striking tree but is very slow growing and definitely best suited for a patient gardener!
