BEECH PURPLE

Beech Purple

Beech Purple (Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea) is also known as copper beech, and like its beech counterparts is a very popular hedge/tree native to the UK. It is a versatile, deciduous plant that is suitable for both gardens and stock proof hedging.

In spring it will produce leaves that are light green-purple in colour, darkening to a rich, deep reddish-purple in summer. During autumn the leaves will change to a gorgeous shade of yellow, before turning into a striking copper colour during winter.
 
Although this is a deciduous hedge it does retain leaves all year round, making it an alternative choice to an evergreen hedge. It can withstand a lot too, as it is a hardy hedging variety. Pollution and salt spray do not harm it, making it a fantastic roadside hedge, while also providing you with year round privacy through a range of different coloured leaves - season dependant.
 
Its planting criteria is the same as the Beech Green - it likes to be pruned during late summer and prefers soils that are well drained, such as chalk and lime. It can successfully grow in full sunlight or even partial shade. Being a tough and reasonably fast growing hedge, roughly growing one to two foot a year, enables it once established to withstand droughts and windy sites.
 
When planting your Beech Purple hedges we’d recommend for a single row that the plants  be planted twelve to eighteen inches apart. If you require a thicker and bushier hedge we’d recommend planting a double row, with a space of eighteen to twenty-four inches apart per plant and a fifteen inch gap between rows.
 
These hedges are available in either pot grown, root balled or bare root form, at different heights, depending on what you require. For more information on our wide and varied selection of Beech Purple plants or any of our other hedging varieties, contact our specialist team members for more information.

PURPLE BEECH HEDGE-PURPLE BEECH HEDGING, FAGUS SYLVATICA PURPUREA HEDGE


The native Purple Beech is a particularly versatile hedging plant, suitable for both formal garden hedges and more extensive stockproof country hedgerows. When trimmed as a hedge Purple Beech can easily be maintained at any height from 60cm (2ft) upwards. Purple Beech is similar to its green leaved cousin in all other respects but is far more colourful especially for garden hedges.
The delicate wavy edged new foliage emerges light green-purple in late spring and darkens to a rich reddish purple during the summer months. As autumn progresses these leaves will often change to a buttery golden yellow before turning to a familiar rich copper in winter.
Purple Beech is technically a deciduous tree however Beech Hedges will retain their leaves in winter, this can be encouraged by giving your Beech Hedge its annual hair cut in late summer.The retained leaves give year round privacy making a Beech Hedge a good alternative to evergreen plants. The coppery brown leaves are also unharmed by salt spray and pollution making Purple Beech an excellent choice for a roadside hedge.
Beech Hedges may be grown successfully in full sun or part shade and will grow in any reasonable soil (including chalk) providing it is well drained. If your soil becomes waterlogged in winter we would recommend you plant Hornbeam another native species that thrives in wetter conditions. Purple Beech is a tough and relatively fast growing plant 30-60cm (1-2ft) per year it will tolerate exposed windy sites and drought once established.
We recommend hedging plants are spaced 30-45cm (12-18 ins) apart for new single row Beech Hedges, for a really thick hedge plant a staggered double row with 45-60cm (18-24ins)between the plants and 38cm (15ins) between the rows.
All of the Purple Beech plants on this page are suitable for hedging, we have an unrivalled selection of sizes to suit all budgets available bare rooted, rootballed or pot grown. More information about these options can be found in our plant size guide.
We supply full planting instructions for your new Beech hedge. Rootgrow and Bonemeal will help your new Beech Hedge establish successfully and may be found on the left hand menu.
