Fagus sylvatica is the magnificent Common Beech, a well known and loved tree, native to the British Isles. While a majestic and beautiful tree for much of the year, it is probably at its best in autumn when the leaves produce a superb array of yellow, orange and bronze colours. Fagus sylvatica Purpurea Pendula was introduced around 1865 and has become a very popular tree. A superb, small, weeping Beech with a mushroom shape and beautiful purple foliage turning reddish bronze in autumn. Easy to grow in most locations although intolerant of water logged soils. It is especially tolerant of chalky soils. Ideal for locations where space is more limited. These trees can be grown in a pot or container and pruned regularly to control size. When growing in a pot or other container. Use a good quality, John Innes compost. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. Do not allow the compost to dry out. Please note: These plants are supplied as grafted plants to ensure they are true to type and long lasting.
