Description

Available Autumn 2017 - This elegant tree was found discovered in Sweden in the mid eighteenth century and over two hundred years later this is still one of the best silver birch.

Betula pendula 'Dalecarlica' has gently weeping branches, delicate, finely cut leaves and good silver bark that while not as good as a Betula utilis, is still very attractive when mature.

Due to its slight pendulous habit we find that it usually needs the support of a stake for the first few years of growth.
