The Weeping beech is a marvelous choice for a specimen tree in the larger garden. It is a medium to larger tree that has a majestic crown with large, pendulous branches which can cascade to ground level. Beech does well almost anywhere except coastal locations.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 1.7 metres in a 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock. Expect a final height of between 15 and 20m.
As with most weeping trees, you can determine final height by allowing the tree to grow to the height you require and then cut the main trunk/stem. If you are going to restrict growth by keeping it in the pot and then planting it, you need to remember to feed every year. The larger the pot, the larger the tree will grow.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
Ornamental Tree Topping
All 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 Fence
It 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.
