Beech Trees

Fagus sylvatica Atropurpurea ft in the Nursery

At Nangle and Niesen we have some fantastic varieties of beech trees such as Fagus sylvatica Purple Fountain which looks truly astonishing when its red/purple foliage emerges in the Spring turning purple/green and then bronze and gold in the Autumn. Another notable variety is Fagus sylvatica Dawyck Gold which is a golden-leaved form of the Fastigiate Beech. A fairly large, columnar tree, which looks good from spring right through to autumn.

Beech trees are important in mixed planting schemes, shelter belts, open hedges and hedgerows. In a park setting free standing beech trees are of immense beauty. In small gardens beech is of great importance as a robust and decorative hedging plant.
