This striking tree is enough to make anyone stop in their tracks! Each paddle-like leaf emerges heavily variegated in spring with white as the prevailing color sprinkled with the traditional shades of green. As the summer rolls on the traces of green become more pronounced. The green and cream speckled color-changing leaves are a work of art you will want to collect for your landscape. This beech takes its sweet time growing to maturity, but we promise that it is well worth the wait! This darling is a majestic beauty and one you'll cherish for years to come. Due to the lack of pigment in the leaves its best to protect them from burning in the sun. Shaded areas are where this tree grows best. 'Franken' takes well to containers as well.
