Our Common Beech Hedge plants, otherwise known as Fagus Sylvatica are a popular hedging species, native to the UK. Beech displays wonderfully bright, fluttery foliage in spring that fades slightly leading into summer, before showcasing stunning shades of coppery orange and brown in the autumn.
Beech hedges are often regarded as semi-evergreen hedge plants as, when lightly pruned in August, the leaves can remain on the branches for the majority of the winter.
