Purple Fountain Beech Trees for Sale Online
Rich purple, glossy leaves cloak the weeping branches of this specimen tree. Purple Fountain creates a handsome silhouette with its strong upright form. Because it is slower growing than a typical beech tree, it rarely needs pruning to maintain its graceful shape.
Purple Fountain is a wonderful tree with numerous cascading branches spilling out of a central leader. Foliage color is purple but bronze and green tones are evident through the growing season. Tight habit and relatively slow growth make this a great rock garden plant that also works well close to buildings.

How to Care for Purple Fountain Beech Trees
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Purple Fountain Beech Tree that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Purple Fountain Beech Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
