Tortuosa European Beech

Fagus sylvatica ´Tortuosa´

Be the first to review this product


Product Description

Each ´Tortuosa´ is truly unique from every other. This variety stays small and has unusually twisted and contorted trunk and branches that make it an interesting eye catcher for any garden. Sometimes called the "Parasol Beech" because of its broad, umbrella-like shape, ´Tortuosa´ has light green leaves. The appeal of its form carries through the winter months, when its twisted, contorted branches give added interest to the garden. Prefers some protection.
Hardy to -30°F
Maximum Elevation: 6,000 ft.
