Hop Hornbeam Picture

Graceful yellow catkins adorn this small understory tree April through May, delicately thin 1 to 5 inch leaves turn a pale golden yellow in fall and may persist into the winter, mature trees have a fine shaggy bark, papery seed clusters resemble hops and persist attractively through the fall, extremely hard dense wood, drought and clay tolerant, turkey and grouse love the seeds, good for both Rain gardens and Bonsai. Don't try to brew beer with the seed clusters - they only look like hops!
