Beautiful and elegant, it's no wonder that Silver Birch trees have been an inspiration to British poets and artists for centuries, and now you can grow one in your own garden!
The long, slender trunks of mature trees have beautiful, white, papery bark with dark cracks running through it, contrasting beautifully with its deep-green, triangular leaves, that droop down from attractive twigs. In autumn, the leaves turn a brilliant golden-yellow colour, before falling just before winter sets in.
Preferring acidic soils, Silver Birch will however grow in all conditions, and provide you with year-round interest for many years to come.
This young tree has been grown in the UK from UK-sourced seed and is supplied as a plug-grown sapling 20-40cm from end to end, ready for immediate planting. Will ultimately reach around 5m tall.
Please note that the silver colour will develop as the tree ages and the bark begins to peel.
