BEECH - European

Fagus sylvatica ‘Purple Fountain’
A deciduous, columnar, dark-leaved tree with bronze-purple, wavy margined leaves and cascading branches. Leaves become more green as summer wears on. A great specimen tree! A chance seedling from Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea Pendula', 'Purple Fountain' is much more columnar and grows slower. It does not need staking to reach a mature height of approximately 25’ tall x 15’ wide. Full sun/part shade. Zone 4

Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea Pendula'
Purple-Leaf Weeping European Beech. This is a slow-growing mushroom-shaped tree which looks more like a shrub than a tree. Rarely does it reach 15' tall and wide. The leaves are dark reddish-brown. Prefers humus rich, light or medium soils and will not tolerate waterlogged roots. However, while getting established, the roots must not be allowed to dry out.

Fagus sylvatica 'Red Obelisk'
Dark purple leaves with dissected margins cover the compact, columnar form. Narrow form and slow growth makes this tree ideal for smaller residential landscapes while also a striking verical accent or specimen in most any setting. Water in extreme heat. Slow growing to 10-12' tall x 3' wide. Zone 4


Ginkgo biloba ‘Layin Low’
A very new form of ginkgo, originated as a sport of ‘Horizontalis’. Growth is strictly lateral!

Ginkgo biloba ‘Mariken’ - 2010 Collector’s Conifer of the Year
This compact, bushy selection was discovered in 1995, a witch’s broom growing in a Ginkgo tree in the Netherlands. It has proven an excellent find, descended with the unique history of the species, with the same fan-shaped green leaves that turn bright yellow in fall. ‘Mariken’ stays very small. Its thick, spreading branches are loaded with a dense arrangement of foliage. The slow-growing, deciduous conifer makes a high-interest architectural feature; a flat, rounded, form for a small garden. Zone 4

Ginkgo biloba 'Mighty Munchkin'
Certainly the daintiest leaf of all the cultivars. Leaves are ¼ regular size. Tree is very dense as the leaves are closely attached and emerge from the stem in a circular manner. Habit is semi-upright with numerous small slender branches radiating outward. Single leader. Bright yellow fall color. Grows approx 4-6”per year. 10 yrs: 4-5' tall x 3-4' wide. Zone 4
Sizes suitable for shipping available

Ginkgo biloba 'Princeton Sentry'
A male cultivar with an upright, narrowly conical habit. Strong cental leader. Leaves turn golden yellow in fall and persist for several weeks. 15' wide.
