Betula pendula   |   Silver Birch

Silver birch is a popular tree, commonly planted in temperate gardens around the world for its ornamental white trunk and fresh green foliage.

Betula pendula are seedling grown and can be highly variable in habit. As such, they are not recommended for plantings where uniformity is desired, but are an attractive option when planted singly or in odd numbered groups in larger gardens.

The triangular- to diamond-shaped foliage is bright green, turning yellow in autumn.

Bark is bronzy-grey when young, later turning papery white. As the tree ages, the bark becomes roughly fissured with greyish-black patches on the trunk.

Growth rate is moderate, with a pyramidal to narrowly ovate habit. Branch tips are often pendulous.

Height: 10 m. Width: 6 m
