Carpinus x betulus



This cultivar of Carpinus betulus was discovered by Geoff Locke at the family Mount Pleasant Tree Nursery, Rockhampton, Gloucestershire, U.K. It has huge potential as amenity, garden, arboreta, specimen and street trees. ROCKHAMPTON RED can also be used very effectively for screening trees, “hedges on stilts” or more formal pleached lines of trees. Being of clonal origin, the specimens will have very good uniformity which is very desirable in such applications.
