Look at our beautifual Rohanii Fagus! They are starting to turn gold and orange!

‘Rohanii’ is a purple-leaved form that reportedly is the result of an 1894 cross between F. sylvatica ‘Purpurea Latifolia’ and F. sylvatica ‘Quercifolia’.

It is a sturdy, pyramidal tree with upright branching. Oak-like leaves with shallow rounded teeth and wavy margins emerge bronze-purple in spring, mature to greenish purple-brown in summer and turn orange-brown in fall. Smooth gray bark is attractive year round.

Cultivar name is in reference to the discovery of this tree at the estate of Prince Camille de Rohan of Bohemia in 1888.
