A beautiful, purple-leaved specimen, with its eratic, weeping branches, is a highlight in any landcape. Creative pruning and staking can be done to expose its irregular, growth habit, giving it even more visual appeal. European beech thrives in a rich, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade.
