Betula ermanii 'Blush'


Description: Betula ermanii Blush is mid-sized slender birch with very rough shoots and bright green, heart-shaped, conspicuously veined leaves which turn rich yellow in the autumn. Beautiful, creamy white-pinkish bark when established and brown-red on the branches. Very similar to the variety Grayswood Hill.

History: Named by Piet de Jong.

Betula Growing Tips: They will succeed on most soils with certain species happy even in wet sites. Although tolerant of chalk soils they will not reach a maximum size in these conditions. Best planted in a full sun position.
