Betula pendula ‘Fastigiata Joes’ ® (JOLEP 1) Betula

Betula

Description: Betula pendula Fastigiata Joes has a very narrow and neat pyramidal growing habit, quite different to most other Birch. This variety is perfect for small spaces and also looks magnificent when planted in lines along an avenue or driveway. Small, attractive green leaves appear in the spring alongside the yellow catkins. Bark will turn a striking white after 4-5 years with pretty twisting branches. Great autumn colours of yellow and orange! A breakthrough in tree selection and an exciting addition to our offering.

History: EU20141206 Originated from Holland.
