Betula Pendula Tristis or Silver Birch Tristis
A graceful ornamental tree, Silver Birch Tristis is a lovely variety of Betula Pendula. Although similar in many aspects, this cultivar has a narrower crown. Trisits is an ideal candidate for a focal point in the garden, grown on a lawn or near a patio where its impressive appearance can be fully appreciated.

Retaining all the noteworthy qualities of its close Silver Birch relatives, Betula Pendula Tristis has a slender, narrower habit that only intensifies its elegant weeping appearance. The pendulous branches are dense with oval leaves that start out as fresh green, and turn to vivid yellow hues in the autumn. In the winter, the drooping brown catkins that persist on tree offer interest, as well as the silvery white bark that comes into spotlight once the foliage drops.

Betula Pendula Tristis, to give it its full botanical name, is not that different from standard Silver Birch, particularly when it comes to its adaptability. This weeping tree will grow in a variety of conditions, including chalky and clay soils. To ensure best results, plant this cultivar in moist but well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Tolerates urban pollution and strong winds, and it can be grown both in sheltered and exposed locations.

Silver Birch Tristis is fully hardy in the United Kingdom and it will not be affected by strong frosts or harsh winter conditions. Its delicate appearance is quite misleading, as this robust cultivar can adapt even to the severest European climates.  As this cultivar is known for its consistently good performance in the gardens, extraordinary adaptability, as well as beautiful appearance, it does not come as a surprise that it won the coveted Award of Garden Merit by Royal Horticultural Society.

Considered medium-sized to large, this magnificent tree can achieve a height of 20 metres maximum and with a spread of no more that 4 to 6 metres. The attractive, pendulous form of the tree is easy to care for, as this cultivar does not require extensive maintenance. All it takes to keep Betula Pendula Tristis healthy and tidy is routine removal of dead and damaged growth. Make sure to prune in early spring, to avoid bleeding of the sap.

With weeping branches, stunning silver bark, and an elegant, narrow habit, Silver Birch Tristis is perfectly suited to be grown as a specimen tree.
