Fagus sylvatica 'Pendula' for those interested, is the name for the Weeping Beech. Currently at heights barely hovering above 8', this deciduous tree is more ornamental than shade producing. The leaves are a shimmery bronze color that dull slightly in the fall, turning almost purple. They can reach heights of 20+' in the correct environment. Hardy to zone 4, they can tolerate extreme cold but prefer a slightly warmer climate to full realize themselves.
