Fagus sylvatica Atropunicea - Copper Beech

Product Description

Copper Beech

Grown as a Tree

Given enough space and time, Fagus sylvatica Atropunicea, the European Purple or Copper Beech, is a large broadleaf tree that will grow into a magnificent specimen. Left to grow freely, Fagus sylvatica Atropunicea will form a broad oval crown which will eventually reach anything from 60-100 feet (20-30m) given the right conditions. The leaves open wine-coloured and mature to deep purple by mid-summer, then turn coppery red in autumn. This is also the time for production of beechnuts or mast, which provide a feast for wildlife and was traditionally used for fattening free-range pigs. Makes excellent timber for carpentry and firewood.

Grown as Hedging

Copper Beech is excellent when clipped to make a hedge. It makes as good a hedge as the Green Beech, and if desired, the two colours can be mixed together to make a bi-coloured hedge. Foliage turns copper-red in autumn, and, like the common beech, it will hold the dry, straw-coloured leaves well into the Winter. Copper Beech hedging makes an excellent  informal or formal hedge depending on how often you clip it.
