Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple'
Size: 7-8 feet
Growth Habit: columnar
USDA Zone: 4-8
Exposure: full sun
Growing Conditions: well-drained, humus-rich, moist soil
Comments: One of the narrowest of all the beeches typically growing 4 to 5 times higher then wide. The leaves are a rich dark purple all through the summer and in winter the strict upright branching provides visual interest.
