Betula alba pendula, also known as the Common Silver Birch or The Lady of the Woods is a graceful slender tree which carries all year round interest. The variable, silver peeling bark develops with age and slightly pendulous branches. Diamond-shaped green leaves turn buttery yellow in the autumn. Yellowish-brown catkins develop over winter and look stunning in the spring. Makes an excellent windbreak and specimen, native tree.
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.
