In Stock
Pot Size

Fagus sylvatica purpurea, commonly known as Copper Beech is a classic tree that can grow to extraordinary height given favourable conditions. It has a long slender trunk that greys with age. Glossy dark purple leaves appear in spring and fade to a copper bronze tone towards the end of summer. Slow growing as a specimen tree but spectacular with time, it has shallow roots so a sheltered spot is preferred. It also makes a great deciduous hedge as it responds well to trimming. Mature height 15m+.
