This is an impressive purple-foliage form of the European Beech. A large deciduous tree which makes an excellent shade tree, particularly ideal used as a specimen in larger parks and gardens where its size is best accommodated. This deciduous tree has smooth, grey bark and deep purple foliage which turns a coppery-red in autumn before falling. It has inconspicuous flowers followed by spiny bracts which encase the beechnuts.
