Betulis Jacquemontii or the Himalayan Birch or to give it its full botanical name Betula Utilis Jacquemontii is also called the White Stem Birch and Jacquemonts Birch after the French naturalist. The Himalayan Birch is a tall upright fast growing tree that can be grown in moist soils. While it is similar (and related) to the Silver Birch Betula Pendula, the Himalayan Birch tree can be considered more dramatic as it has an even whiter bark or trunk. An outstanding birch that well deserves a place in the garden. Despite its variety of names, it is generally referred to as Betula Jacquemontii.
Betula Jacquemontii is a deciduous tree and is one of the most popular trees for sale at Paramount Plants. Originating from the Himalayas, its unusual bright white bark provides interest in the winter landscape. Betula Jacquemontii has dark green leaves which turn to ochre yellow in the autumn and each Spring the white birch tree produces attractive yellow brown catkins. This tree provides valued all year interest. The branches fork out from the stunning white trunk fairly low down, then growing sharply upwards to naturally form a broad crown that reaches 15 metres.
Betula Jacquemontii is relatively fast growing and can grow in either full sun or partial which provides year round interest. It produces catkins in spring, has green foliage in summer which turns a luscious gold in the autumn. Particularly striking is its white bark that looks almost magical in winter.
These Betula Jacquemontii birch trees can also work well in smaller or even urban gardens as while they grow tall, Betula Jacquemontii does keep its slim & slender shape. In the wild, birch trees like plenty of light (as opposed to deep forest), thrive in their own company and tend to look very good in groups. Perhaps this is why we often see birch trees growing in clusters. Betula Utilis Jacquemontii, which are often are often used as wind breaks, are frequently planted in clusters of at least three. Planting distances are flexible – 3 trees planted close together (1 to 2 metres apart) can create a mini-copse effect. Alternatively, consider a multi-stemmed option. We also have the Himalyan Birch available as a multi-stem trees. See Betula Jacquemontii Multi Stem.
