Description

Red Obelisk Beech is a stunning deciduous tree with a narrow, columnar shape that can add height and interest to any landscape. Its foliage starts out as a deep purple in the spring, maturing to a glossy dark green in the summer. In the fall, the leaves turn a brilliant golden orange, making it a standout in any autumn garden. The Red Obelisk Beech is a relatively low-maintenance tree that is adaptable to a variety of soil conditions, including clay and loamy soils, and is also resistant to pests and diseases. It's a great choice for a focal point in any garden or as a striking accent in a mixed border.
