The Betula pendula ‘Royal Frost’ will add an exciting touch to your garden with its distinctive rich burgundy leaves. As autumn approaches, the foliage turns to a fiery orange-red, creating an eye-caching focal point.
Apart from the magnificent hues of the leaves, it astounds with a unique bark that changes colours throughout its life. The young bark starts off as a creamy white shade, then turns to cinnamon and brown as it matures. Yellow catkins form in spring.
Purple Birch is a relatively new hybrid, cultivated in 2006 by pairing the 'Whitespire' with the 'Crimson Frost'. It is suitable for most gardens apart from those that are really pressed for space. Plant next to a lovely water feature to create a me-space. If you have a really large garden, use Purple Birch to line a border wall or stand alongside a driveway. The stunning burgundy leaves against the white bark make an imposing sight!
Offering a tree as a present makes a thoughtful and long lasting memory. The Purple Birch makes a fabulous gift idea for new home owners.
