Carpinus turczaninowii - Korean hornbeam

Carpinus turczaninowii: Korean hornbeam is a small rounded deciduous tree with prominently veined ovate leaves, reddish when young, orange-tinted in autumn and with conspicuous fruiting racemes.

Korean hornbeam leaves are smaller and more clearly veined.

As a species they are not difficult to grow as bonsai; they are very late to lose their leaves in autumn and often the withered leaves remain in place similar to beech, sometimes requiring gentle trimming to remove before the new shoots break out in spring.
