Carpinus caroliniana | 3 gal. pot (Oversized)
Small native tree often found growing near streams. Smooth gray bark on older trunks ripples like muscles, hence the common names "musclewood". Lightly furrowed and serrated green leaves change in fall, when color ranges from nice yellows to exceptional oranges and reds.
Small native tree or large shrub often found growing near streams. Tolerates flooding, and is quite adaptable to other low-nitrogen situations-- can take it quite dry-- but hates to be transplanted once it has achieved much size. Smooth gray bark on older trunks ripples like muscles under taut skin, hence the common name, "musclewood." Fall color ranges from nice yellows on some trees to exceptional oranges and reds on others. We grow both single-stem and clump forms; please specify which you prefer.
