The Common Beech has magnificent foliage with shimmering colours in the autumn. Its weeping shape and its branches which can touch the ground give it a very unusual aspect. Its foliage is ‘marcescent, meaning it remains on the tree over winter and fall just before the appearance of new leaves.
Superb grown on its own in a park, it can also be grown as a separating hedge thanks to its dense branches. As it withstands well pruning, it can also be grown as topiary or as a bonsai.
