'Fastigiata Joes' is a striking columnar silver birch. The compact upright shape makes this an ideal tree for the smaller garden, whilst several planted along a driveway look quite striking.
The leaves are neat and small, and the branches twist attractively. In autumn the leaves turn yellow / orange.
The characteristic white bark colour develops after 3-5 years.
