The bright white bark and slender form of Betula utilis jacquemontii 'Doorenbos' make it a popular choice for gardens. The trunk and branches peel to reveal the fresh white bark, which gives special winter interest. With much whiter bark than the Silver Birch that is native to the UK, Himalayan Birch 'Doorenbos' has the added advantage of the bark colour developing in a relatively young tree.
This white stemmed Himalayan Birch is an elegant tree with an open head, casting only a light dappled shade. Glossy, dark-green, oval foliage turns a cheery yellow in the autumn. In its single stem form, expect a height of 7 metres and spread of 4 metres in 20 years. We also offer multi stem Jacquemontii.
Betula utilis jacquemontii 'Doorenbos' is a robust, medium-sized ornamental Birch tree that will tolerate virtually all soil types and conditions.
