I’m 'Herb' the Hornbeam, and I am a rapidly growing deciduous large shrub or small tree native to Asia. I have multiple trunks with a flat-topped to round dense form, pendulous maroon branches and tiny leaves. Through the summer, my leaves turn a deeper green and finally to a golden yellow and orange in the fall before they drop.
I like morning sun and bright indirect light in the afternoon. Water me well about once a week, or when my pot starts to feel about 1/2 lighter. The best way to water is to submerge my pot up to the rim. Allow me to spend most days/nights outside for some fresh air and natural light.
In winter I like to rest up outside in a protected spot from November until spring, when my baby leaves start to appear again. During the winter months, keep me in temperatures between 25 - 50 degrees Farenheit.
