Planting and care

American hophornbeam likes full sun or partial shade. It prefers slightly acidic soil and well-drained sites. It loves hilly areas, and in the wild, often grows in fairly dry, even rocky soil. It is hardy in Zones 3 to 9.
The tree should be mulched and watered until it is established. Although it is not sensitive to drought, it can not survive flooding. It is also very sensitive to deicing salt.
