Purple beech is the common name for a particular strain of seedlings that have deep purple coloration instead of the green typical of the species; seedlings with this unique attribute are considered to be a forma of the European beech known as the Atropurpurea group. This group includes a variety of purple-leaved European beech trees with many different leaf colors, from pale purple with tints of green to bronze-purple and even a dark purple that is nearly black. As a low-branched deciduous tree, the purple beech works well as a hedge with regular pruning.
