Copper Beech Hedging (Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea)



Copper Beech Hedging (Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea) leaves are a rich copper colour in the spring changing to purple in early summer then darkening further as the summer progresses. The autumn colour of the copper beech is warmer than green beech with an orange hue. Beech hedging plants look great when cut to a formal shape and mature plants that are clipped in mid summer will hold on to their autumn leaves better in the winter months.

Plant Care & Advice

Evergreen hedges need less water than deciduous or flowering hedges. In late fall, remove dead wood and weeds and, if necessary, restore the mulch layer around your hedge. An essential part of our recommended aftercare is watering. Newly developing plants need to be drenched during the first year, ensuring that water reaches their roots. Even in winter, when most plants are dormant, there can be dry spells, so plants need a generous soaking. Hedging also benefits from being fed. We recommend bonemeal, alternatively any similar slow release fertiliser.
