Purple Dawyck Beech: Fagus Sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple' - 14 Inch Pot - 7 Foot Tall
A tall, narrow tree with purple foliage that turns bronze in the fall.
Caring for Fagus sylvatica, commonly known as European beech or common beech, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This deciduous tree thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Plant it in a location with sufficient space for its mature size, as beech trees can grow quite large. Water the tree deeply during dry spells, especially during its early years of establishment. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to shape it and remove any dead or crossing branches. Fagus sylvatica is generally resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance tree. However, monitor for any signs of trouble and take appropriate measures if needed. With proper care, your Fagus sylvatica will provide you with dense foliage, beautiful autumn color, and create a stunning presence in your landscape.
