new oriental hornbeams to offer

All these are new oriental hornbeams, Carpinus orientalis. They are all in the container for at least one vegetation period. All these trees are for sale or trade. Oriental hornbeam is one of the very best trees for bonsai in the world. They have these wonderful trunks, small, good looking leaves, good fall color, quite hardy, can freeze stiff in winter, very draught resistant, hard to kill. I love them. I have only discovered this species three years ago and now I have about 100 of them. But not any very good finished ones yet. Lots of hope though.
