Carpinus caroliniana 'Autumn Fire'

Fastigiate Musclewood

Ordering plants has concluded for the season. The selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2024 plant catalog will be available later this winter

An upright, narrow selection of our native musclewood/hornbeam, 'Autumn Fire' has a desirable size and shape for urban and street tree uses. Would also make a great vertical accent in mixed plantings or a tall narrow hedge for screening.  Reliable and impressive fall foliage is a bright medley of burgundy, orange, and red.
