Fagus sylvatica Rohan Obelisk Beech 
Fagus sylvatica Rohan Obelisk, also called the Beech Rohan Obelisk  was cultivated from seedlings of Fagus sylvatica Dawyck. A form of European Beech, it has retained Dawyck’s columnar growth habit but is more compact and petite. This is a small but very showy deciduous tree

Beech Rohan Obelisk was cultivated directly from seedlings of Dawyck so it retains all the beauty of its parent but also boasts a growth habit that is narrow and vertical. It does not have any weeping characteristics. It attains a height of 10 meters with a canopy width of 4 meters. The small tree’s canopy is extremely low and starts to develop about 30 centimeters from the soil line.

The foliage of the Beech Rohan Obelisk emerges in the spring in a deep plum shade. As the leaves mature, they turn dark green. Usually, the second flush of plum coloured leaves emerge and contrast brightly against the green leaves. The leaves are exceptionally eye-catching in the breeze because they undulate making the whole tree shimmer and come alive. Upon maturity, the leaves are serrated, saw-toothed, and pointed. In the autumn, the foliage again changes colour and turns a brilliant burgundy. When the leaves fall from the tree, its grey, almost silvery bark is very showy and creates visual interest during the gloomy days of winter. 

Plant this Beech in full sun for best foliage colours. It will grow in virtually any soil type and is not particular about pH levels. The tree benefits from being planted in a slightly wind-sheltered location. It prefers well-drained, evenly moist soil conditions. The root system will not tolerate soggy or boggy soil.

The Fagus sylvatica Rohan Obelisk is a low maintenance tree and requires very little care to thrive. Once established it can withstand periods of drought. The tree needs no pruning to maintain its pristine appearance, but if you want to trim a few limbs then it should be done in the late winter months after all threat of extreme cold weather has passed.

Plant this impressive Beech Red Obelisk tree in any part of the landscape that you want to draw attention. Fagus sylvatica Rohan Obelisk can also be used to line avenues and walkways.
