Full Retail Price: $195 (Why the difference?)
Striking variegated leaves with pink and white edges set this beautiful tree apart from other beeches.
Does best with some shade in the summer. Avoid planting in areas that receive hot afternoon sun/western exposure; prone to scorched leaves if not sheltered from the hot sun or dry winds. Well-drained, acidic soil best; does not do well in compacted soil.
