WEEPING PURPLE BEECH (Fagus sylvatica pendula purpurea)

Purple Weeping beech is particularly attractive, with its purple/russet red leaves. This is the finest Weeping Beech on the island. Although  smaller than the Common Green beech, this species has masses of drooping branches which may reach the ground; providing welcome shade during the summer months. During the winter months the sculptural form of the trunk and branches and the silvery-grey bark can be admired. Many purple beech have been grown from seed and the weeping purple beech is a good specimen so it would need good open space. Our range of beech plants include (Green Beech - Fagus Sylvatica) (Purple Beech - Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea)  (Weeping Green Beech-Fagus Sylvatica Pendula)

Eventual height 4-5 meters and spread 4 meters.


Beech is easy to grow on any soil so long as it is not waterlogged. Especially suited to chalky soils.
