Fagus syl 'Cristata'- rare old variety

In cultivation since the 1800's, this rare form is still extremely hard to come by.  Fagus syl. 'Cristata' can eventually become a 20-30' tree, but is very slow growing so this 12/14'H x 5/6' will be easily manageable in your garden for quite a long time.  The non-beech like leaves cluster together on congested, contorted clumps.
