oriental hornbeam #23

Oriental hornbeam, Carpinus orintalis, 60 cm high, collected in 2009, grew enormously in only one vegetation period. Promising.

Big beast of a tree! Are these hornbeams you get imported from Korea or elsewhere, or field-grown locally?

These trees grow wild in Southeast Europe. They were bitten by sheep and goats over decades. They are all wild and were collected. Some in mine fields from the Balkan wars. So I don't do this myself.
