Korean hornbeam

Post  JimLewis on Tue May 31, 2011 3:15 pm

I was given this tree as a near seedling in 1986 by the late Bill Sykes of the IBC. I know if as Carpinus coreana, but I guess the lumpers have put it as C. turczaninowii now. I doubt I'll ever manage to spell it right without checking, so C. coreana it will remain for me.

At your insistance, I've put it into a shallower pot (pic 1).



But I'm not at all certain hat I don't like it better in the deeper pot it was in last year (pic 2)

I think that shape wise I like the thinner pot though I think I like the color of the deeper pot better. I definitely like the first pic in the deeper pot better but I think this is due to a preference for the lighting of the pic and the way the tree looks in it, the dry bark vs the wet bark in the new pic, and the moss around the tree. My thought is the presentation of the tree in the deeper pot was simply superior to the newer picture including the ability to see a bit more of the trunk of the tree about 2/3's the way up where the bark has a beautiful, aged look. I wish we could see an apples to apples comparison. The tree is so nice it would good planted in a plastic tray from Home Depot in my opinion Smile

Maybe this is a better view of the trunk?

I like the tree a lot, have you considered a glazed pot rather than unglazed ? I think a glazed pot would complement the leaves better.
