Unique Tree

A highly distinctive and unique tree with extraordinary colors is the Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor,' commonly known as the Tricolor Beech.

 

Total Height

The Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor' or Tricolor Beech is a medium-sized tree with a maximum height of 10 to 15 meters.

 

Leaf Color

The most striking feature of the Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor' is the leaf color of this tree. It varies from tree to tree in colors such as purple-red-green-white-pink. Generally, the leaf in the middle is purple-green in color and changes towards the edges with pink-white margins. Each tree of this cultivar is unique, and as a result, it will display its colors in a different way.

 

Branching

The Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor' has a broad and open branching structure, requiring some space.

 

Pruning

The tree can be well-maintained with shaping pruning and is even used as a hedge. However, it is important not to cut the tree trunk bare, as the Tricolor Beech is very sensitive to sunburn on the trunk.

 

Location

The Fagus sylvatica 'Tricolor' thrives in a nutrient-rich, well-draining soil. It prefers to be in a free, open space where there is no paving or hard surfaces over the tree's root system.

 

How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
