Fagus sylvatica 'Purple Fountain'

Purple Fountain European Beech

Differs from 'Purpurea Pendula' by being a "nursery plant" it develops a loose, upright leader instead of trying to be an ugly purple mushroom that requires constant staking. The landscape effect is charming, with pendulous branches and a loosely upright leader.
