Carpinus betulus Rockhampton Red (CBRR)

Our stunning autumn-colouring Hornbeam the Carpinus betulus ‘Rockhampton Red’ (CBRR) has gained significant traction amongst plant hunters since its release a few seasons ago and we can confirm good availability of specimens upward of 180cm in height. This cultivar of the native Carpinus betulus was discovered at the nursery in Rockhampton by Geoff Locke in the early nineties.  The CBRR’s spectacular fiery-red and orange autumn show can compete with the seasonal displays of Acer, Parrotia and Liquidambar ornamentals, whilst maintaining the intrinsically hardy characteristics of common hornbeam
