A new selection, Carpinus betulus 'Lucas' is narrow, and upright in habit with dark green summer leaves and yellow/orange autumn colour once established. It seems to have a slightly more compact habit than the similar Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata'.

The very narrow habit makes Carpinus 'Lucas' suitable for even the smallest of gardens and also for growing as an avenue tree!
