(Dwarf Hornbeam) An unusual dwarf Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus 'Columnaris Nana' forms a dense, conical shrub or very small tree in time with green summer leaves which turn shades of butter yellow before falling in autumn. The narrow habit and slow growing nature of Carpinus betulus 'Columnaris Nana' makes it suitable for even the smallest of gardens.

Obviously this is a very slow growing plant and is absolutely not for instant gratification - the attractive narrow habit usually takes a few years to form.

Young 2 - 3 years old plants in 3L pots, approx 10 - 15 cm tall
