Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea Pendula Weeping Copper/Purple Beech Tree Options Explained
90-120cm : 5 Litre pot, and 90-120cm tall at delivery.
120-180cm: 9-12L pot and around 120-180cm tall at delivery. (Maybe slightly smaller at the start of the season e.g. August)
Girth 10-12cm : 50L Pot and comes as a standard (more clear stem than a Half Standard) Roughly 200-250cm
Girth 14-16CM (HS) : 110L pot and comes as a half standard. Roughly 200-450cm
Once a Fagus gets over around 2-3 years old, height becomes a less accurate measure of maturity and girth is used which is a measurement around the trunk of the tree. Each 2cm girth increment e.g. 10-12cm, 12-14cm represents around 12-18 months growth. There is a LOT of vague language around tree sizes because there is so much variation between species, where and how they were grown, natural growth rate of tree etc. Although the height listed may look similar to the size before it, there is a very noticeable difference in canopy size, structure and rootball as indicated by larger pot size.
A Half Standard Weeping Beech tree will have slightly less clear stem than a standard
Weeping Purple Beech is a lovely tree with cascading pendulous branches that make it an attractive feature in any garden. Its petite height makes it ideal for smaller gardens where light pruning can retain its neat rounded shape.
Expect a final height of approximately 5m at 10 years but could double that if ideal conditions exist.

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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
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.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
