A very narrow, upright purple beech with an interesting, graceful habit. The top branches remain erect, while older secondary branches become pendulous. All are coated with lustrous purple foliage in the spring. The small stature, to 12' with a 3' spread, allows those gardeners with limited space an opportunity to own a fine specimen beech.
