Description

Fagus sylvatica “Roseomarginata

This is a great shade tree with unusual foliage which can thrives best in partially sunny and mostly sunny areas.  It’s early spring leaves are marbled with silvery-white and cream color, then becoming purple leaves edged in pink and white in the summer.  Up close its leaves are purple with a border of blushing white and rose.  This tree blazes with color for a stunning effect and stands out with its unique color.  The Tricolor Beach becomes a large tree at around 30 feet tall at maturity, so it needs adequate room to grow.  It is a versatile tree but ideal in lawn planting – possibly as a front yard statement tree or possibly as a backyard shade tree in a city environment.

This is a slow growing tree so it can be used in landscapes but be thoughtful when planting as this will becomes a large tree.  Requires regular watering especially during the summer months.  This is a cold hearty tree ready to stand up to Colorado’s winters.  It should be planted in well drained areas.

Hardy to -30°F
Maximum Elevation: 7,000 ft.
