The bark of smaller branches is more smooth and gray with small lenticels.

The alternate leaves are ovate, pinnately veined, and doubly serrated.Hop Hornbeam is usually monoecious, the same tree has separate male and female flowers in the form of catkins. On rare occasions, some trees are unisexual.

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.
