This recently introduced hybrid is a cross between Betula ‘Crimson Frost’ x Betula populifolia ‘Whitespire’. A most elegant ornamental tree, characterised by distinctive rich burgundy leaves and, after 2-3 seasons, a white stem with cinnamon hues. The yellow-orange-red autumn colours are an added feature.
Plant in full sun in moist and well drained soil. Very hardy. Final height will depend on soil conditions, but 6-8m is a reasomable estimate.
