Desired quantity:    

Purpurea Tricolor (Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea Tricolor') is a medium sized tree with an expected height of around 6 metres after 10 years. Also known as Roseomarginata, this beech has a very attractive form with irregular pink margins to the purple leaves. The tree develops a lighter canopy than most beech. A frequent addition to many public parks and gardens due its striking foliage, ease of maintenance and ability to withstand winds or exposed sites. A very hardy tree capable of withstanding temperatures around minus 30 degrees centigrade.

This tree is supplied at a height of between 120-200cm and supplied in a 7- 12 litre container for year round planting.

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Planting Fagus Purpurea Tricolor Purple
For best results plant in a fertile loamy soil and well draining site with around a neutral PH. This tree is not so happy in heavy clay soils with poor drainage but is chalk tolerant. For the average gardener who may not be sure of their soil type, if you take a handful of earth and squeeze it in your hand and let go, what is left in your hand tells you what type of soil you have. If it falls apart immediately then you have very sandy soil. If after a gentle manipulation it stays in the same shape then you have a very heavy or clay soil. A loamy soil is somewhere in the middle i.e. you need to gently manipulate or squeeze the ball several times to break it up completely. Adding compost or well rotted manure to clay and sandy soil will bring you closer to a loamy soil.

Pruning Fagus Purpurea Tricolor Purple
This tree prefers to be left alone when it comes to pruning. It may appreciate you talking to it or giving it a hug from time to time. The absence of tree complaints seems to support that view.

Definitely cut out dead diseased or crossing over branches when the tree is in it's dormant phase which is November to March.

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.

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 Trees
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.
