Carpinus betulus 'Franz Fontaine' Fastigiate European Hornbeam


Franz Fontaine Hornbeam has noteworthy features from its sleek, columnar form to its rich, dark green spring to summer foliage which turn a pleasing golden yellow in the fall. The Franz Fontaine Hornbeam is perfect for fitting into smaller landscapes and the narrow spaces in between properties, providing a hedge or screening tree. It responds well to pruning when shaping as a hedge. It looks outstanding when planting multiple trees in a row – lining a pathway or forming a hedge.
Franz Fontaine Hornbeam prefers full to partial sun and well-drained soil. It grows to a height of 35 feet and 9-12 feet wide.
