Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is one of our few evergreen native hedging plants with an appearance very similar to Beech (Fagus sylvatica) but its leaves have deeper veins.
Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is often mistaken to be Beech due to its very similar appearance, however Hornbeam is what we call semi-evegreen meaning its leave do turn colour in the winter but they tend to stay on rather than drop off like deciduous species. Hornbeams foliage is mid-green with deep veins and turns copper in autumn. The leaves hang on to bare branches throughout the winter providing some year-round cover. Carpinus betulus makes the perfect hedge for keeping noise and wind minimal. It also acts as a fantastic privacy screen. You can plant Hornbeam alone as this makes for a good feature hedge or you can plant with other native hedging plants and create your own mixed native hedge.
