Betula apoiensis ‘Mount Apoi’ Betula

Betula

Description: Betula apoiensis 'Mount Apoi' is a slow growing tree, perfect for smaller gardens or spaces. The attractive creamy white bark develops a shaggy nature with age and the dark green foliage turns deep yellow throughout the autumn before leaf fall. A cluster of green catkins appear during the spring with the fresh leaf growth.

History: Raised from seed collected on Mount Apoi, Hokkaido in Japan.

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.
