Beech is a reliable and hardy tree of our climate. There are many wild forms, hybridized varieties, and selections on market these days that can satisfy the taste of almost everyone. It is easily distinguished by glossy, mostly broadly elliptic leaves with conspicuous venation. Beech is used both in private gardens and in green spaces in towns and cities because it does not require any maintenance once established.

Pendula is a weeping form of European beech first introduced by George Loddiges in his nursery in London, UK, in 1836. It bears deciduous, 6-10 cm long, broadly elliptic-ovate, glossy leaves that emerge bright green, mature to dark green in summer, and turn yellow and brown shades in autumn. Its weeping branches form irregular cascades and each tree is unique in its habit. It grows slowly but mature trees are substantial and are best located as lawn specimens with space around them so you can fully enjoy the outline of this tree. In gardens in scape height is around 10m but in parks with unlimited root space it can grow twice as much.

Beech is not fussy about the soil type – it can live in a wide range of well-drained soils, from slightly alkaline to slightly acidic, and once established it withstands drought better than most other broadleaved trees. Grow it in full sun or just a light shade for a part of the day. It can be pruned in late winter. Newly planted trees with a trunk height of 1.5 m and taller need to be staked to a strong support for at least 3 years before the roots establish. Fully hardy to min. -34 °C (USDA zone 4).
