Fagus sylvatica 'Cochleata'
Size: 30-36 inch
Growth Habit: 6 feet high x 4 feet wide
USDA Zone: 4-8
Exposure: full sun
Growing Conditions: well drained soils
Comments: Green leaves are oval, toothed, and spoon-shaped. Typically grows more as a twiggy shrub. In cultivation since 1840, though still rare in the trade. Will take many years to reach the size mentioned above. If you plan to be around in another 70 years it will reach 15 feet. Good luck!
