Rare cultivar of Beech first found in the late nineteenth century in Germany, Fagus sylvatica 'Ansorgei' is a very slow growing with fine, narrow and willow-like, deep purple leaves. The leaves are at their most purple usually in Spring and early summer, gradually turning dark purplish-green towards late summer/early autumn.

Although, not quite a weeping plant, this produces long arching branches which are very elegant in appearance, especially when growing out over a path, stream or pond. Very slow growing and not for instant gratification!


  • Position: Full sun or dappled, light shade.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Very slow.
  • Habit: Eventually a very small, spreading tree with long, arching branches.
    • Height: up to 4 m (13 ft).
    • Spread: 6 m (20 ft).
  • Notes: Please be aware that this will not grow to reach the above size for many years. A specimen of Fagus sylvatica 'Ansorgei', planted in the woodland garden surrounding our nursery has reached a height of 1.5 m, a spread of 2 m after 12 years.
