Providing gorgeous year-round interest, the Copper Beech tree, its Latin name Fagus syl 'Atropunicea' makes a stunning addition to any garden. The Copper Beech will retain its leaves throughout the year to provide a full canopy whatever the season. During the warmer months, the leaves will be a deep purple before turning crisp and brown in the winter. This hedging can grow to impressive heights when left to its own devices. The height of this plant can, however, be adjusted to your requirements, depending on whether you are using it for hedging plants or screening.
