Description

A similar plant to the Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold', this is a tall, narrow tree with beautiful, rich-purple foliage. The foliage colour is dependent upon the amount of sunlight it receives and therefore always turns a richer shade of purple when planted in a position with full sun.

Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple' is a handsome specimen tree with a narrow, columnar habit.

Supplied Size: 3L / 4L pots (approx 3 - 4 years old, 40 - 60 cm tall)


  • Position: Full sun.
  • Soil: Any fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Vigorous.
  • Habit: Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple' grows to be a tall tree with a narrow, columnar habit.
    • Height: 20 m (66 ft).
    • Spread: 6 m (20 ft).
  • Notes: In our experience in dull, wet years without much summer sun, the foliage can turn a dark greenish-purple. The leave will recover and have a much better colour with a few weeks of good sun.
