Copper Beech creates a neat and tidy screen. When grown side by side, the plants will knit together to form a dense hedge that makes a good security barrier and provides an extra level of privacy. The colourful foliage makes a decorative feature, and just like Green Beech, it will retain some of its autumn foliage through the winter. This decorative hedging plant is easy to maintain, only needing clipping once or twice a year. We have them potted up in nutritious soil and a plastic black pot.
