Copper hedging has broad, deep purple leaves that remain intact throughout all seasons until they are replaced by the new, soft purple foliage in the springtime in a stunning display of colour. This beauty is why it is seen as the ideal replacement to evergreen hedging and is also favoured by many of our customers as a more affordable alternative too.
The Copper Beech hedging (if preferred) will grow tall, whilst still being easy to maintain, only needing to be trimmed once or twice a year to keep it at your preferred height. In one year, the Copper Beech hedging will grow from 30cm – 60cm, depending on factors like watering and nutrients, placing it into the “fast growing hedge” category. Our Beech hedging is available for you to purchase from 30cm all the way up to 210 cm tall, meaning you have the choice of affordably growing the hedging or receiving it fully-grown and having instant privacy and protection all year round due to it keeping its leaves throughout the seasons.
The Copper Beech leaves go through various colour phases throughout the seasons of the year, they first burst out in early spring with soft yet vibrant purple leaves. As the season proceeds the leaves grow deeper in colour and become a more vibrant copper colour; creating the appearance of hedge we are all used to seeing. Finally in Autumn the leaves become crisp and golden marking the start of winter. We find this product is always in high demand due to its versatility as it’s suitable for normal, clay and chalky soils, and will still grow in fully sunned areas and semi shaded areas in both inland and coastal gardens.
If preferred, Copper Beech hedging can be enjoyed alongside other types of hedging, like Green Beech hedging, if the two types of Beech are put together in a multi-hedging they can create a striking mix of colours to create a very unique hedge.
