Commonly known as the ‘Copper Beech', is one of the most popular varieties of hedging shrubs in the UK due to its colourful foliage and suitability for the British weather. The magnificent glossy foliage develops throughout the seasons, in spring the foliage is a dark green and purple and changes in summer to deep copper brown, then in autumn it transforms to rich purple. This makes it the perfect hedging plant for providing effective screening and all year-round colour. Like its green counterpart, the Copper Beech is, strictly speaking, a deciduous shrub. An excellent formal hedge, the Purple Beech can also provide much-needed shelter to wildlife throughout the winter when fully deciduous varieties have completely shed their leaves. This versatile, vibrantly coloured specimen can be grown as a hedge of any height from 1m upwards. Supplied as 40-60cm bare root plants.
