This is a beautiful, large specimen tree that has deep purple foliage all summer and bronze autumn colour with the dead leaves staying on the plants, sometimes until late spring. It also makes a good, dense hedge.

A mix of Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea' and the common Fagus sylvatica in a hedge can create a striking two toned hedge of purple and green. Suitable for a position in full sun and most well drained soils including chalk.
