Buy Betula utilis subsp. jacquemontii 'Doorenbos' himalayan birch ( syn. Snow Queen ): Good stem colour develops in just 3 years

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Creating a wonderful specimen in the winter garden, the bare stems of this Himalayan birch will provide a striking wintery silhouette, which can be further enhanced by underplanting with snowdrops. Unlike many of the other birches, this one takes just 3 or 4 years to develop its snowy colour, so it makes a good choice if you are impatient to move things along. It will eventually grow into a big tree, but as the canopy remains light and airy, it rarely feels oppressive.

    All the Betulas we supply are single-stemmed, but they can be planted close together to create a multi-stemmed effect.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake well.
