  1. What a beautiful tree! Purple beech are my favourite trees and I’m lucky enough to have a lovely mature one right where I can see it from my sitting-room windows. 🙂 The are glorious!

    1. I think it can denote a different form that’s occurred naturally, we have natives with ‘Purpurea’ tacked on the end. Confusing. I don’t know what’s behind the naming convention.
