Fagus sylvatica 'Black Swan' is a small and elegant weeping tree with cascading branches once established and handsome dark purple/red leaves. The colourful leaves turn shades of bronze and brown before falling in autumn.

For best growth and foliage colour plant in a position with plenty of sun and use a tall bamboo cane or similar to support the leading shoot. Train the leader up the cane tying it in every few months and allow the tree to grow to whatever end height you wish over time.

Once it reaches the height you are happy with do not tie in the leader any more and it will cascade down from that height and start to fill out with branches.
