European Beech (Fagus sylvatica) has been widely planted across Europe and North America for many years. Pyramidal to oval in youth, becomes more rounded in age. Lustous dark green, 2 to 4 inch, leaves hold late into fall before turning rich russet and golden brown colors. Smooth gray, elephant hide-like bark is stunning in the winter landscape. The cultivar ‘Tricolor’ is quite amazing with its purple leaf and rose and pinkish white border.
- 50-60 Ft in height and 30-45 Ft in width
- Full sun to part shade
- Best grown in deep, rich, moist but well-drained soils, intolerant of wet, poorly drained soils.
