I didn't know there were tri colored Beech trees. COOL!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

This particular picture isn't in the database.
There are three tri-colored Beeches there, but none are as dark.
Could you post the botannical name?

@crittergarden, I don't have the specific botanical name for this tree. I went on a garden walk in Bloomington, Illinois, and these seem to be a popular plant in the area. I saw them in at least 5 different home gardens (out of maybe 15 on the entire tour?), and they all had this coloring. I don't know if it is because of the geographic location, a particular cultivar, or the season in which I took the picture. I thought they were a beautiful and unusual tree, so I took pictures at several different locations! All of the ones with labels just said Tri-colored Beech Tree. I try to make a point of photographing the label after the plant, so I can look it up when I get home.

Thanks Booker.
I've just now come in for the Winter to catch up with the forums.

I don't really have much room for trees.
And over the course of the 2012 growing season I pretty much convinced myself to grow apples and whatever other FOOD producing trees will do well here in zone 5.

That Beech IS gorgeous though.

The botanical name is Fagus sylvatica 'Roseomarginata' (also listed as 'Tricolor' and 'Purpurea Tricolor', as per UConn) Tri-colored European Beech (Fagus sylvatica 'Roseomarginata')

These trees have come to be all the rage, however, they need to be planted as an under-story tree. I've desperately wanted one for years but do not have a proper site for it. Too much sun and that beautiful pink becomes a nice crispy brown.
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?
