3 left in stock
Native to the Himalaya, Betula utilis 'Jacquemontii' - Clump (Himalayan Birch Clump), which is prized for its brilliant and exceptionally white bark, is a lovely addition to the landscape. While young trees have a rich, brown bark, it quickly changes to gleaming snow-white as the tree matures. Vigorous and fast growing, this medium-sized deciduous tree has an open pyramidal habit with a graceful and delicate branching. It bears alternately arranged, ovate, dark green leaves, which warm up to bright yellow in fall before they shed for the winter. In spring, tiny yellowish-brown male flowers appear in drooping catkins while greenish female flowers appear in upright catkins. The female flowers give way to drooping cone-like fruits containing numerous small winged seeds. A full sun or part shade lover, the plant is easily grown in medium to wet, well drained soils.
