#4: Kwanzan Cherry Trees Weeping Beech Tree
Across from the Kwanzan Cherries is the majestic Purple Fountain Beech. This tree was planted in memory of Craig Soloman.
Rich purple, glossy leaves cloak the weeping branches of this specimen tree. Purple Fountain creates a handsome silhouette with its strong upright form. Because it is slower growing than a typical beech tree, it rarely needs pruning to maintain its graceful shape.
Purple Fountain is a wonderful tree with numerous cascading branches spilling out of a central leader. Foliage color is purple but bronze and green tones are evident through the growing season.
