Fagus – aka deciduous Beech. An ole English favourite for living colour!

Beech, available in upright or weeping forms, comes in a spectacular range of colours – greens, golds, bronze and copper. In April and May as the tree prepares for winter the leaves display a wonderful array of brilliant reds, oranges and golds before they fall.

The Beech is a slow growing tree, that will grow in most NZ conditions.

aka Cut leaf Beech

The cut leaf beech was developed c. 1820 in Europe. It was planted frequently in parks and large gardens as an ornamental tree. Long, narrow buds open to slender leaves with deeply cut, long, narrow lobes and taper to a fine point. These are green in summer and turn a stunning copper-gold in autumn and persist well into the winter.

Where branches are cut or damaged, as in Woodstock, ordinary beech leaves will appear. This is because the tree is a ‘chimaera’ and has inner tissues of ordinary beech overlaid by the tissues of the cut leaf form.
