What is a musclewood tree? Also called a hornbeam, this hardwood tree belongs to the genus Carpinus--and to the Eastern United States. Thanks to its native credentials, Wisconsin Red Musclewood has excellent disease resistance, hardiness, and growth, plus it attracts native bees and birds. However, excellent breeding has given this hornbeam tree a delightful fall coat of colors. Reds, yellows, and bright oranges shine in autumn and fall to reveal smooth gray bark. Perfect for planting in a windbreak or adding to the garden as a specimen tree, Wisconsin Red Hornbeam grows to a stately 15 to 20 feet. Carpinus caroliniana 'MY Select Strain'
