I have a Tri-Colour Beech (Fagus Sylvatice) tree that is about twenty five years old, two weeks ago I noticed that it was covered in what looked like flower buds. Thinking this was unusual as I did not think the tree flowered, and it never has in the last twenty five years.

After a weeks absence from home we returned to find the ground around the tree absolutely covered in seed pods and the seeds they had carried, there were thousands(no bull) of seeds and pods so I collected a jar full. After all of that, my question is this;

Can the Tri-Coloured Beech tree be grown from these seeds?
