The classic, statuesque beech of Gothic novels. Somewhat spreading or columnar, growing 60-80' tall. Known for its fall color, F. sylvatica turns a coppery yellow and orange each year. Not only a fabulous specimen shade tree but also excellent for hedging. The bark is gray and smooth, developing an elephant hide appearance with age. Withstands a variety of soil conditions as long as it is well drained but prefers slightly acidic soil. Plant purple leaved varieties in full sun and the yellow-leaved varieties in partial shade. Does not do well with extreme heat.
