Carpinus betulus Frans Fontaine is a compact and upright hornbeam, making it suitable for smaller gardens. Long-lived, medium-sized, deciduous tree with an attractive form, even in winter. Glossy, mid-green, beech-like leaves, turning golden in autumn. Little or no pruning required.
This tree works really well as an avenue tree along a driveway with its upright habit. Superior to Carpinus betulus fastigiata, as it keeps its narrow form into maturity.
