Betula pendula 'Youngii' is a smaller, more weeping alternative to the traditional Silver Birch. Its compact dome shaped form has long, graceful branches that will eventually sweep the ground, making it a spectacular tree for smaller spaces that might not be able to house one of the larger Birches.
Commonly known as Young’s Weeping Birch, 'Youngii' boasts yellow-brown catkins and mid-green, triangular, serrated leaves that turn a warm yellow when autumn appears. White coloured bark develops, giving this tree a beautiful skeletal form in the winter, when its smooth white bark is showcased at its best.
A tough tree, 'Youngii' will tolerate most soil types and conditions and a height and spread of 4 x 4 metres in 20 years can be expected.
