Q.Are these hornbeams the same species

Zone Hillsdale NJ 07642 | Anonymous added on May 12, 2020 | Answered

I purchased what I thought was 3 pyramidal hornbeams but one of them is growing a little differently. My goal is to have an elevated hedge above my fence for privacy and Im hoping these trees grow into one another but the one on the right looks a little different. There were not exactly the same size when I bought them so I’ve had to trim the one right. Now I’m concerned it’s not the same species.

The one on the right does look different. Perhaps you could speak with someone in the garden center where you purchased them.
