Betula utilis Jacquemontii
Betula utilis Jacquemontii (Himalayan Birch) is a beautiful specimen tree with an outstanding white trunk and lovely papery bark that will make an impact in any garden.
Planted as a single specimen tree, used to line a driveway or planted in small groups of 3 or more this medium sized tree is a stunner.
B. utilis var. jacquemontii 'Silver Shadow' and B. utilis var. jacquemontii 'Grayswood ghost' are two named cultivars also available for sale.
We think B. utilis Jacquemontii just might be the best birch tree for bark that you can find.
The bark peels away each season revealing a lovely patterned smooth trunk (see picture roght). So called 'multi stem' specimens are available and yes they look great as well, we however prefer the classic simplicity of a nice single stemmed form.
Growing Conditions are Care
A humus rich moist soil and a position with some protection from hot winds or coastal winds will be ideal.
These trees require little care once established. Water in well and provide adequate water until the tree is established. May require staking when young.
