Betula pendula Youngii

Young's Weeping Birch

A weeping cultivar of the native silver birch, Betula pendula Youngii is a better choice than Tristis for the smaller garden. Young’s weeping birch is a small, slow-growing, deciduous tree with a domed crown and arching, slender branches which fall right to the ground. The bark is white and peeling; dark fissures develop as the tree ages. Rarely flowers and fruits. The leaves are small, delicate and heart-shaped, a fresh, light green, turning yellow in autumn. Good specimen for the small garden, making a lovely ‘den’ for children to play in.
