Beech Purple Hedging

Purple Beech (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,quickly 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 (30-60cm) a year, enables it once established to withstand droughts and windy sites.

The number of plants needed for a new Purple Beech hedge depends on your budget, how patient you are and which size plant you would like to start with. As a guide 3 plants per metre is enough if you are patient, for a thicker hedge that develops more quickly you may like to set the plants in a double row which will require 5 per metre. For the smaller sizes (60/80cm or smaller) you could plant at 7 per metre for a really dense hedge.

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.
