Fagus sylvatica ‘Atropurpurea’

This purple-leaved form of the European beech i.e. Purple Beech Hedge tolerates a wider range of soils than the American Beech (Fagus grandifolia). Fagus sylvatica Atropurpurea Group is a particular strain of seedlings that have deep purple coloration instead of the green typical of the species; seedlings with this unique attribute are considered to be a form of the European beech known as the Atropurpurea group. This group includes a variety of purple-leaved European beech trees with many different leaf colors, from pale purple with tints of green to bronze-purple and even a dark purple that is nearly black. As a low-branched deciduous tree, Copper beech works well as a hedge with regular pruning.



European beech (Fagus sylvatica) is native to the woodlands of southern and central Europe. It was brought to America in the middle of the 18th century and it has been a popular ornamental shade tree ever since.
