Latin name: Fagus sylvatica 'Roseo-Marginata'
A large stately color accent tree with incredible green, white and pink-variegated foliage, often mottled on the same leaf, must be seen to be believed; quite particular about growing conditions, requires rich soil, significant moisture and room to spread.
Tricolor Beech is a dense deciduous tree with a shapely oval form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
