The Silver Birch (Betula pendula) tree is a very attractive tree with a fine silver bark, often known as the "lady in the woods". The Silver Birch is a great tree for the garden. It produces pretty catkins and attractive diamond shaped leaves in the spring and is a very popular gift for a silver wedding anniversary.
In Scottish folklore a barren cow herded with a birch stick would fall pregnant bearing a healthy calf.
The current height of the tree is 20-40cm and it can be planted year round.
With each tree gift, your tree is presented in a jute drawstring bag with your own personal message and planting instructions.
