Can you give me a list of purple beech cultivars?
There are several Fagus sylvatica varieties with purple foliage:
'Atropunicea' (copper beech, purple beech) alt. 'Riversii' or 'Purpurea' - 50-60 feet tall, 35-45 feet wide; good in containers
'Dawyck Purple' - columnar to 70 feet tall and 15 feet wide
'Purpurea Pendula' (weeping copper beech) - usu. no more than 10 feet tall and wide; good in containers
'Red Obelisk' - columnar
