Copper beech (Fagus sylvatica f. purpurea) - foliage
Copper beeches are documented as natural mutants of the common beech in various parts of Europe, as early as the 15th century. The tree is classified as native in the south of England and non-native in the north. Copper beeches grow to a height of more than 40m. The name of the tree is derived from the coppery to deep purple coloured leaves.

The flowers are both male and female and grow on the same tree. In April and May the tassel-like male catkins hang from long stalks at the end of twigs, while female flowers grow in pairs, surrounded by a cup. For a full view of this tree see > LinkExternal link.
