This less common cultivar sports dissected leaves emerging a dark red-purple, often mixed with a sprinkling of even lighter margined leaves throughout--a very appealing textural effect. It will grow up to 1' each year, eventually forming a tree of 50-60' in height with a columnar shape.

Columnar purple leafed beech that holds color well though out the season. (Twin Springs Nursery)

Obelisk from the Greek for needle describes the fastigiate habit of this uncommon Beech; "Red", the deep red-purple color of its handsome deeply cut foliage... for accent or hedge it will stand out. Sun/Med

Columnar habit to 25' tall by 10' wide with dark burgundy-black leaves. Adds seasonal interest in winter with the vertical branching habit.
