The Purpurea Group is a collective name for beech selections with purple to copper coloured leaves. The colour intensity can vary depending on seed, growing conditions and weather. It is often more vivid in spring, and may fade to a coppery green over summer. Good on any well drained soil, including chalk, with the exception of clay. When sheltered from strong wind, the dry, coppery foliage is often retained late into winter. For most intense colour grow in full sun. Prune late winter/early spring if needed. Shallow rooting.
