Perfect Shrub When Slower Is Better!

It was a simpler time. People traveled by horse and carriage, not 'light rail'. They wrote letters expressing their love and waited weeks for the answers to return, not by tweeting and waiting 3 seconds for the response. There was no 'fast food'. Dinner took hours. You actually wore 'dinner apparel". If you were lucky, you spent summer afternoons reading in the garden or trying to find your way through the hedge maze on the manor grounds.

Ah, the hedge maze! A storied European tradition. You've seen them on TV shows and in movies and in travel magazines and have always wondered what they were made of. Just what are those hedges that grow so lush and thick and tall?

They were Hornbeam. They are made of rows and rows of Hornbeam trees planted closely and sheared religiously. It took years of care by garden masters and landscape architects to achieve maze perfection.

Our guess is that you probably don't have the space for a massive hedge-maze in your garden. That's OK. We don't either. But we know that you have room for Dwarf Monument Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus 'Monument' Dwarf Hornbeam. This is the first natural dwarf Hornbeam in the market. The dense foliage grows is an upright pyramid form and is lush-green all summer turning butter-yellow in the fall.

Dwarf Monument Hornbeam will definitely remind you to slow down. It takes a decade or more for it to grow just 3 or 4 feet! Plant it where your grandchildren will enjoy it. Content in any well-drained soil and full sun, this is one of the easiest trees you will ever grow.

Slow down and enjoy Dwarf Monument Hornbeam in your garden. Order from us today!
