This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    As the tree ages, the bark turns bright white, which helps light up the garden in winter, or act as a beautiful contrast for the dark green leaves, which turn yellow in autumn. An elegant tree that is perfect for all gardens, large or small. It can be grown as a specimen in the lawn, grown in a group in a woodland or just planted as a feature in the garden border. The yellowy brown catkins it produces in spring are also attractive.

    All the Betulas we supply are single-stemmed, but they can be planted close together to create a multi-stemmed effect.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting and stake well.
