fat oriental hornbeam
This is an oriental hornbeam, Carpinus orientalis. It was collected in Italy a couple of years ago.I got it in a trade this summer as a bush. Today I decided to bring it to the next step. Normally this is done in March/April. But we have such nice weather now. Anyway, this is a fat little hornbeam which has great potential. This will become a powerful tree in five to ten years.
