Black Lady Korean Hornbeam - 1st summer after grafting

Black Lady Korean Hornbeam - 1st summer after grafting

 

is a small leaved, delicately branched small tree with leaves that begin green and turn to blackish green during the summer. The JC Raulston Arboretum has a Black Lady that seems to be doing only fair so far. This cultivar would be appealing to someone with a theme garden, perhaps someone collecting dark leaved plants. It also could be used as a small specimen to contrast with much lighter colors. This tree can be grafted onto European Hornbeam during the winter, with good results. The young plant in the picture is showing several feet of growth in its first summer.
