Pleached Silver Birch Betula Utilis Jacquemonti
Betula Utilis Jacquemontii, or as it is better known as, Silver Birch, is popular for its stark white bark and good autumn colour. In fact, this deciduous tree is one of the most sought-after birch varieties precisely for the dramatic display it creates in the landscape and year-round interest it offers. Throughout the seasons, the unusually white bark catches the eye, and the delicate dark green leaves this tree produces turn to ochre yellow in the autumn, which looks even more stunning in contrast with the bark. In the spring, ornamental brownish catkins offer interest.
Pleached silver birch trees retain all those attractive qualities, but their unusual form only makes them more pronounced and easier to fully appreciate. Silver birch pleached is equally as elegant as the full standard form. The bare clear trunk draws attention with its dramatic white hue, and the square crown above looks exceptionally beautiful. The process of pleaching silver birch trees is quite a specific skill and it takes time to achieve the signature look of neat square crowns and clear stem below it. Our pleached silver birch trees are sold fully formed and need no additional shaping.
How Hardy is Betula Utilis Jacquemontii Silver Birch Pleached
Silver birch received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for its exceptional qualities including famed resilience. This is a tree native to the Himalayas, so its no surprise that it is fully hardy in the United Kingdom and able to withstand extreme winter temperatures.
How To Use Betula Utilis Jacquemontii Silver Birch Pleached
Highly ornamental, tough, and traditionally trained for added interest, pleached silver birch trees will add a dramatic effect to any landscape. Use pleached silver birch trees to line walkways, visually add height to bordering walls and ensure privacy at the same time.
