Tricolor beech is a beautiful, small, deciduous tree with gorgeous variegated foliage. The leaves emerge purple with irregular creamy pink and rose-colored margins in the spring, then turn bronze-green with pinkish white margins as the season progresses. This tree will benefit from some protection from the hot afternoon sun. Perfect for use as a specimen tree. It is a slow growing tree reaching 20-30 ft. tall and 10-20 ft. wide.
