Betula pendula 'Gracilis'

CALL IN ADVANCE TO CONFIRM AVAILABILITY Although Gracilis is a relatively large variety of European white birch, its slender, weeping branches and deeply cut foliage always give it a graceful, delicate appearance that mixes well with evergreens. Under optimum conditions, it can be grown well in this area, despite heat: Situate where soil can be kept constantly moist; ensure some afternoon shade. Yellowish-brown catkins in early spring; yellowish-green leaves in fall. White bark exfoliates in strips. Cold resistant. *Rarely Damaged by Deer*
