Purple Beech Hedging Plants

‘Copper Beech’, Fagus Sylvatica Atropurpurea

Copper Beech Trees share all the same attributes as Green Beech other than the colour. A purple beech hedge is at its stunning best when in full sun and the leaves become the most vibrant purple. This can create a fantastic contrast to the many greens of the garden. The purple leaves darken even more further into the summer and then change to the most wonderful copper hue in autumn and if trimmed in autumn, the dying leaves are held on until the new growth arrives in spring. It therefore makes a great alternative to a fully evergreen hedge. An excellent choice for a formal, native hedge tolerant of exposed conditions. For soils prone to drought or heavy clay, waterlogged soils, Hornbeam is a more suitable alternative.

Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
