Black Swan Weeping Purple or Copper Beech Tree
A medium height tree with a height of up to 6 metres (20 feet) after 10 years, Black Swan (fagus sylvatica 'Black Swan') is a good weeping purple beech. It is more compact and with deeper red purple foliage than any other form. Leaves open brown and then go almost black within a few weeks.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.2 and 1.5 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.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Black Swan Weeping Purple or Copper Beech Tree
Excellent! Totally brightened my day, I am reliably informed by the tree receivers that it was delivered in a timely fashion, the driver was helpful though not a comedian. Mum & dad planted the specimen with Dad's bandaged carpal tunnel, and tell me it is a "fine specimen indeed" so there you go- I will attempt to sneak a photo of them with said tree over Christmas but they are both a little camera shy Thanks very much- quick, efficient- funny-would use you again! 1214

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.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
