PURPLE FOUNTAIN BEECH

Fagus sylvatica ‘Purple Fountain’

This tree can create a very unique and dramatic effect in the landscape. Branches weep sharply from a meandering but ascending leader or trunk. The glossy purple leaves add to the overall showy nature of this interesting weeping Beech. Its' narrow habit allows it to be planted close to buildings or in small spaces.
