Product details

Originating from Northern France in the mid 1950s, this densely branched tree has typical silver birch foliage and silver white trunk but grows in a very ascending fashion so doesn’t exceed 3 metres diameter, making it a very useful birch for restricted areas and small gardens.

I have seen this clone used to great effect on a roundabout in Oakham, Rutland where width was at a premium.

Thriving on most free draining soils, this tough little tree is quite often growth feathered, with branches all the way down its stem. Its green leaves turn to a clear yellow for the autumn and its twiggy brown branches gives great contrast to its thicker white trunk as it matures.

Mature height: 7-12m

Mature spread: 3-5m
