Purple or Copper Beech is a really classy hedging plant - luxurious green/black/purple leaves from spring until late autumn and then (like green Beech) it's leaves turn copper brown so it has two completely different appearances each year bringing great variety to the garden. Grows 30-60cm per year. Supplied as 60-90cm bare roots.
Bare Root hedging plants are a great, cost-effective way for you to achieve your hedging goals. They are grown in an open environment, exposed to natural conditions, which allows these plants to develop with no restrictions. When opting for this root type, you will receive well established plants with sturdy root systems as a result of their growing method. Given the way in which they are grown, bare rooted plants are available from November until May as this is the time of year when the plants are dormant and can be safely lifted from the field. This category mostly consists of native, deciduous hedging species which many of them flower and/or berry so they make great hedges for wildlife and provide seasonal interest.
