Himalayan birch - multistemBetula utilis Jacquemontii
As the name suggests this is a tree with many stems. This not only increases the number of white stems it also has the added advantage of reducing the overall height of the tree. Originally from the Himalayas. A truly beautiful small tree grown for its pure white stems that just get better with age. In addition, the tree has a vivid yellow autumn leaf colour. This is a good choice for the small garden and grows well on a wide range of soils, including damp ones (not permanently waterlogged!) and will tolerate quite a bit of exposure. Mature height: around 8 metres in the north of England.
The brilliant white stems just gets whiter with age and is excellent against a dark back ground. It will tolerate a fairly damp soil.
Usually available as a multistem tree 200cm to 400cm tall.
