'Fascination' is a vigorous birch, likely to reach 5m - 6m after 10 years.
'Fascination' is usually now considered to belong to the species Betula albosinensis, the Chinese Red Birch - and its coppery peeling bark is certainly similar to others of that species. However when it was discovered in the 1970s in a batch of trees at a Dutch nursery it was originally placed in the Himalayan birches (Betula utilis).
Illustrative example of a pot-grown tree of this variety as supplied.
Approximate girth: 6/8cm.
