Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold' Cherished for its smooth gray bark, elegant deciduous foliage, stately habit, and adaptability, European beech has long been a garden favorite on its native continent and elsewhere. A seedling of 'Dawyck' that shares that cultivar's dense narrow columnar habit, 'Dawyck Gold' has bright golden spring leaves that deepen to yellowish green in summer. In autumn they turn shades of yellow, orange and bronze. Inconspicuous flowers in spring usually do not result in fruit. This cultivar is fastigiate when young but broadens somewhat with age.
Tough and reliable, European beech performs best in moist, well-drained, acidic to alkaline soil in full sun. Established trees tolerate some drought. With its showy foliage and starkly upright habit, 'Dawyck Gold' makes a striking landscape accent. It also works well for hedging or screening.
Goes well with 'Purple Fountain' and ‘Tricolo’ Beech. Check out our store for these great plants!
