Betula pendula ‘Youngii’ Betula

Betula

Description: Betula pendula 'Youngii', also known as Youngs Weeping Birch creates a mushroom-headed, medium weeping tree with branches long enough to reach the ground. Rough white bark has black fissures with age. Triangular, serrated, glossy green leaves arrive in the spring followed by yellowish-brown catkins. In the autumn, the foliage turns a stunning golden yellow.

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.
