The Highlights

    • A smaller and more weeping alternative to the traditional Silver Birch
    • Features a compact dome shaped form, with long, graceful branches that will eventually sweep the ground
    • Perfect for smaller spaces, growing to 1.5x6m
    • Commonly known as Young's Weeping Birch and boasts yellow-brown catkins and mid-green, triangular, serrated leaves that turn a warm yellow when Autumn appears
    • 'Youngii' is fully hardy and will tolerate most soil types and conditions
    • Provides year-round interest with its peeling brown bark
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
