Looking for a rare and beautiful addition to your garden or landscape? Look no further than Carpinus cordata, also known as the Heartleaf Hornbeam. This Asian hornbeam grows slowly, reaching a height of 30-45 feet and boasts broad, heart-shaped leaves with deep veins. In the spring, the tree produces greenish flowers that lead to pendulous "pagoda" seed clusters. Known for its graceful form and attractive foliage, the Heartleaf Hornbeam is the perfect choice for shady areas, and can even be grown as a bonsai specimen. Hardy to zone 5, this deciduous tree prefers moist soils and can grow in heavy clay, acidic, neutral, or alkaline soils. Don't miss out on the chance to add this uncommonly cultivated but nonetheless handsome tree to your outdoor space.
