Fagus sylvatica ‘Purple Fountain’ looks truly astonishing when its red/purple foliage emerges in the spring, turning purple/green and then bronze and gold in the autumn. The pendulous branches of this Purple Beech sweep down from the central leader, some reaching the ground.
‘Purple Fountain’ is a beautiful slender weeping Beech tree that will grow to 8 x 3 metres in 20 years and can tolerate an exposed site. Most soils will do, but avoid very wet positions. Plant in full sun for the very best colour.
