Stunning purple-pink foliage on this Beech!
Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor' This is the ideal purple-pink Beech for smaller city lots. Use it for shade, along an entry drive or as a street tree. Very cold hardy, the Beech can be both an accent among evergreens or planted in a grove and its color will be perceptible from a distance. Majestic and well formed, it's a great front-yard statement for larger homesites with traditional architecture.
This vividly colored tree was introduced in 1888. Its ancestry includes the copper beech which explains its rich bronze coloring. The genus was classified by Linnaeus under its ancient European Latin name, fagus, which includes about ten cultivated species and innumerable varieties and clones. Its primary ancestor, A. sylvatic is a forest tree native to central and southern Europe, which was introduced into North American in colonial times. Tricolor would make a very interesting bonsai.
