The only known selection from the Eastern American native beech. Larger leaves, than the F. sylvatica and its progeny, they are held longer into winter as well. As the name implies, it is a weeping form. Like many weeping plants it likely requires staking to desired height. Mature size is as yet unknown, suspected 15-20 high and wide.

I love rare plants. Greer Gardens is the only source I know of for this tree.
