The graceful Silver Birch is a popular tree for specimen planting, with upright branches from which younger shoots spread down in a pendulous fashion.
The white peeling bark develops after a few years, and becomes more characterful as the tree ages.
In autumn the pretty diamond-shaped small green leaves turn yellow, while in winter the naked white branches are particularly attractive.
