Description

Rare selection of oriental beech with a very slim, fastigiate habit and attractive, rounded fresh-green leaves which turn a striking, butter-yellow in a good crisp autumn. The dead leaves hold for a long time on the tree before blowing away.

The very narrow nature makes Fagus orientalis 'Iskander' a superb tree for formal planting or avenues and a suitable choice for gardens with limited available space.

    • Height: up to 15 m (50 ft).
