Purple Beech hedge plants (Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea'), also known as Copper Beech, are a delightful hedging species boasting glossy foliage in shades of purple and darkest green. Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea' makes a great alternative to an evergreen hedge, as its foliage turns copper and then crispy brown in the winter, hanging on until new foliage emerges in spring.

Take a look at our Copper Beech hedging blog for further information about this wonderful variety.

  • Best Features: Year-round interest, colourful foliage
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1m-5m high
  • Growth Rate: Average to Fast | 30-60cm a year
  • Position: Any normal soil, sun or partial shade, exposed inland and coastal
  • Also Consider: For colourful foliage try Red Barberry or Purple Leaf Sand Cherry, or for similar foliage, displaying slightly brighter tones, consider Green Beech.

* Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Purple Beech plant, not a bundle of plants. We use a mixture of bare root photos taken in leaf from our growing sites in summer, as well as during the bare root planting season when Purple Beech may be defoliated.
