The Story

Rohanii European Beech received its name in 1888 when the cultivar was discovered on the estates of Prince Camille de Rohan of Bohemia. It is a cross between Large-leaf Copper Beech and Oakleaf European Beech.

The Details

The edible Beechnuts are enclosed in a prickly husk, and much loved by birds and squirrels. They also add a little decoration through winter, like a unique ornament to the tree!

How to Grow

Be strategic in placing your Rohanii European Beech.  Because the leaves tend to scorch in hot afternoon sun, planting it where it can get lots of morning sunshine but shade in the afternoon would make this tree happiest.  It needs regular irrigation and well-drained soil and appreciates a layer of mulch to keep its roots cool and moist.  Like all Beech trees, this variety is shallow rooted, so the less competition you give it from turf or other plants, the better.  The other thing you’ll need to have is patience.  Rohanii European Beech is a rather slow grower, but—ask anyone who owns one—worth the wait!
