The Fagus sylvatica Purpurea Pendula, also called Purple Weeping Beech, finds its origins in Germany where it was selected in 1865. It is a weeping tree whose branches fall gracefully to the ground. Purple Weeping Beech is covered in glossy, very dark purple foliage that turns a little green if the tree is exposed to too much shade. These leaves, once dead, persist through the winter until new growth.

Fagus sylvatica Purpurea Pendula resists cold up to frosts of -30°C. Once adult, it can reach a size of 5 meters high with a spread of 2 to 3 meters. Its gray bark is smooth. Purple Weeping Beech is a fascinating specimen which flowers in May, discreet small flowers grouped in catkins, they will subsequently give fruits, small bristly nuts of 2 cm, edible, but which can prove toxic if consumed in too large quantity. Its marcescent leaves are petiolate and measure between 4 and 10 cm. Oval, deep purple, in the fall they turn coppery, passing through orange-red in a variation of splendid shades.

The Purple Weeping Beech will easily thrive in fresh, drained soil rich in humus.

The Fagus sylvatica Purpurea Pendula is a very popular decorative tree in the garden, whether it is associated with a Golden indian bean tree to contrast with its purple foliage, or solitary on a lawn. It is entirely possible to cultivate it as a bonsai, as it has the particularity of being incredibly resistant to pruning.
