I have left these descriptions vague so you will have
the fun of finding the trees for yourself.
In Wilmington proper there is one tree, on the Market
Street Mall, between 4th and 10th. The largest
hophornbeam in Delaware is in Arden, on private
property; I have looked for it, but it is not
readily visible from the street. My tree friend Vik
from the Delaware Center for Horticulture has organized
a planting of several trees at the city park near St.
Francis Hospital (in fall of 2003).
