Fagus sylvatica ‘ Purpurea’
Fagus sylvatica ‘ Purpurea’, common name copper beech, is a beautiful, large, deciduous tree with a densely pyramidal to rounded-spreading crown. Its foliage of broadly elliptic, lustrous, coppery to deep purple leaves, turns copper-red in the autumn. Branching to the ground, its smooth, gray bark is truly stunning in the winter landscape. In mid-late spring, small, yellow-green flowers are on display. They are followed by bristly fruits which ripen in the late summer and are edible. Our tree was planted in 1956.
