55 Tri Color Beech

Tri Color Beech, Fagus Sylvatica 'Tricolor'

This tree has unusual foliage; early spring leaves are purple becoming green with marbled silvery-white and cream color edges as they mature. This is a slow grower and can reach up to 35 feet tall and 25 feet wide, so give it plenty of room to grow. It needs regular watering and does better in cooler areas, prefers well-drained, acidic soil. We are growing this tree to see how it does in the valley.
