The Columnar Purple Beech tree is a slender deciduous tree that grows 25 feet tall within 20 years, yet only 6 feet wide. Eventually it may be 50 feet tall and no more than 15 feet wide. It features bold foliage, colored purple-red in spring, turning dark burgundy-purple for the summer. The gray bark and lacy twigs are beautiful in winter. Fall colors are bronze and brown. This tree is a wonderful lawn specimen or accent plant, and it can also be planted in a row as a screen or to mark a boundary. A pair would accent an entrance perfectly.

  • Narrow vertical accent tree
  • Rich purple-red to burgundy-purple leaves
  • Grows in almost all types of soil
  • Perfect lawn specimen or eye-catching feature
  • Hardy, reliable, and easy to grow

The Columnar Purple Beech is easy to grow in zone 4 or warmer areas. It is not particular about soil, as long as it is not always wet, and it is easy to grow. Full sun will produce the best leaf colors, but some shade is tolerated too. Pests and diseases are not a problem, and deer usually leave it alone. No trimming at all is needed to maintain this tree’s slender, upright form.
