Beech is a reliable and hardy tree of our climate. Variety Purpurea Tricolor has deep burgundy red leaves with pink margins that, upon conditions, can reach the centre of the leaf.

Natural habit is quite airy and thin when young. When mature it reaches well over 10 meters but this happens seldom, usually in arboretums and parks. Thanks to its slow growth rate it is used even in small gardens provided it is wisely pruned. Good trimming in late winter will encourage growth of new branches that will thicken the tree. Ideal for bonsai.

It is tolerant of a wide range of well-drained soils, red-leaved forms need full sun for best leaf colour. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
