Renounded for their leaves and bark, the Beech tree can be quite the site to behold. This variety is a touch smaller, reaching heights of 50' and 40' wide. In Spring, it produces dark purple leaves that are densely packed in its upright branches. These turn slightly greener in the summer before shifting to a bronze color in Autumn. In Winter, the smooth, pale bark adds a lovely contrast to landscapes. These trees make excellent shade trees.
