American Hornbeam is a small slow-growing native deciduous tree with a global habit.  Its smooth grey bark and thick branches have distinct muscle like fluting when mature.  The oval dark green foliage turn yellow and orange in the fall. Separate male (white) and female (green) catkins bloom in early spring and the female catkins give way to distinct clusters of winged nutlets.  Prefers rich moist soils.
