This Whitebeam is a truly striking tree which will have a real presence in your garden. In spring, the fresh foliage is covered in creamy white down and as the weeks progress the colour changed to a grey-green colour. Pretty white flowers appear in May and these later become scarlet autumn fruits. The leaves turn yellow before falling, at this time the ornamental bark can be admired with its orange and beige tones. This is an outstanding tree which makes the perfect lawn specimen.
