Fagus sylvatica Dawyck Gold is a golden-leaved form of the Fastigiate Beech.
This stunning Beech has golden yellow leaves, classically Beech in form, that appear in the spring and gradually turn to a pale green throughout the summer before giving a show of golden yellow foliage in the autumn.
The crown shape of this tree is distinctively upright, forming a distinctive flame shape as it matures. When mature this medium to large tree seldom reaches more than 3m wide.
Fagus sylvatica Dawyck Gold is thought to be a seedling cross between Fagus sylvatica Zlatia and Dawyck, raised by JRP van Joey-Smith in 1969 and won the Garden Award of Merit in 2002.
It is a tough tree, like its parents, and will thrive just about anywhere, but does not do well in exposed or coastal conditions. This tree is best suited to reasonably fertile and well drained soils but does not perform well on heavy clay or light sand and being a shallow rooted tree we do not recommend under-planting.
This tree looks superb against a dark background, so is a good inclusion in a planting scheme which includes varying foliage colours. Being a fairly large tree at maturity, this tree is best suited to parks and large gardens.
Mature height: 15-20m
