Silver Birch Tree
The Siver Birch Betula utilis, is an ideal choice for a small town garden. This medium sized British native loses its leaves in Winter but the bare white branches look stunning against a clear blue sky in the early Spring.
Each year the bark peels away revealing layer upon layer of delicate white parchment. One of the most dramatic cultivars is the Betula utilis var. Jacquemontii .
