Description

Available Autumn/Winter 2017 Produced from a selected seedling of Fagus sylvatica 'Marmorata', the white marbling on the variegated leaves of this selection is very attractive and better than its parent. Young plants have green foliage lightly flecked with white markings.

As the plant establishes the foliage becomes fantastically white variegated, with the leaves in spring sometimes being pure white with tiny flecks of green. As summer progresses the green becomes more evident.

Fagus sylvatica 'Franken' is a beautiful yet slow growing foliage plant!

Supplied Size: 3L containers (three to four year old plants, approx 25 - 30 cm tall)
