Purple Fountain Weeping Beech Tree
Some prices given on other websites include the height of the tree from the bottom of the pot. Our sizes are taken from the top of the pot to the top of the tree. Dawyck is so expensive because they take a long time to grow and a lot of the trees do not make the grade so you can be sure that what you are receiving has survived the strongest of inspection standards over a 4 to 5 year growing period.
A large tree reaching a height of over 6 metres (20 foot) after 10 years, Purple Fountain (Fagus sylvatica 'Purple Fountain') is one of the best selections of the weeping purple beech with a narrow growth habit developing a good dominant central leader. The leaves are rich dark purple. First intoduced in Holland.
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.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Purple Fountain Weeping Beech TreeOctober 2013: The tree came in perfect condition. I planted it straight away, and little shoots are already growing. If I had a bigger garden I would buy more trees, but my wife ( a garden hater) says I already have a jungle. Actually, I am quite happy with that comment, as that is exactly what I am trying to achieve.
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.
