The Tri-Color Beech is without doubt one of the most spectacular and beautiful trees you will ever see, and for an eye-catching specimen, or an addition to your garden, this is the one. Perhaps you want to gift a tree to someone to mark a special occasion. Certainly, if you want a tree that is really, really, special, and incredibly beautiful for a large part of the year, then this is it. This rare tree is hardly ever available, and it offers a unique beauty not seen in any other tree. The stunning foliage is purple and pink, making a tree in spring look like it is flowering, not simply leafing out. The color turns more purple by mid-summer, and then golden bronze in fall. In winter the smooth, light-gray bark makes for continuing interest.

  • Remarkable purple-pink foliage in spring and early summer
  • Spectacular specimen tree with a unique presence
  • Purple in summer and bronze in fall and early winter
  • Moderate size for a specimen in a special location
  • Easy to grow, with minimum care needed

The Tri-Color Beech grows in zones 4 to 7, and it thrives in areas with moderate temperatures all year round, and good rainfall. It will grow in any well-drained soil in most garden situations. It should be grown so that it has full sun in spring and afternoon shade in mid-summer. It needs no special pruning, and it can be grown with low branches, or a taller trunk. This easy-care tree has no significant pests or diseases, and it grows more and more beautiful every year that it occupies that special place in your garden.
