The Fern Leaf Beech (Fagus sylvatica 'Asplenifolia') is a large tree with an expected height of over 6 metres (20 feet) after 10 years. This beech, has a smooth silver grey bark in common with most beech.
The attractive, narrow, lance-shaped, dark green leaves make this a very graceful form. The leaves turn copper-gold in autumn. Thrives in light shade.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.0 metres in a 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock.
Ornamental Tree ToppingAll ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A FenceIt is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
