Beech Foliage

In the Dunedin Botanic Garden on 24 Nov 2019 we looked up to see beautiful spring foliage on a beech tree. Very colourful in the sun. Fagus sylvatica. Dunedin, New Zealand.

First two photos by Nigel, last photo by Liz.

  1. I’ll try to remember what I said yesterday. That comment may have ended up in your spam folder.
    These leaves are so lovely and different from our beeches which are green from the start. In Autumn they get a bit ruddy and then turn pale, almost white as winter wears on. Spring foliage can be quite colorful which many don’t realize.

  2. Our beeches are not red in the spring. Nicely green though. We do see some ruddy tones in Autumn. People don’t think of Spring foliage as being very colorful but it certainly can be.
