The American Hornbeam (also called the Blue Beech) can grow to be 20-30' tall and 20-30' wide. This tree is monoecious, meaning it produces both male and female flowers. This is a low maintenance tree that likes the shade and can grow in zones 3-9.
Regular watering, especially during harsh heat.
As with most plants, you will want to water this tree well when it is first planted to be sure that the roots take to the soil. Give it some love in the next spring by feeding it an all purpose fertilizer from our Garden Center!
