Fagus sylvatica 'Rohanii' Cutleaf purple European beech is a wonderful addition for the larger urban or sprawling country landscape. The very structural smooth, gray barked trunk and stout branching is accented by the unique foliage texture and color. Deeply rippled, dark red-purple leaves that create a stained glass effect when penetrated by the glow of sunlight through the canopy. Tolerant of tough urban conditions and makes a dominant statement for any garden. Prefers organic rich well drained soil.
