Further Information

This beautiful birch with creamy pink bark and golden yellow autumn colours is a native of North Eastern Asia, including Eastern Russia, Manchuria, Sakhalin and Northern Japan (Hokkaido).

Betula ermanii is named in honour of a remarkable German physicist, Adolph Erman, (1806-1877), who journeyed from Berlin to Eastern Russia on foot and horseback.

He was principally interested in the earth's magnetism but recorded his fantastic adventure in a superb account of his journey titled 'Travels in Siberia Including Excursions Northwards, Down the Obi, to The Arctic Circle and Southwards to the Chinese frontier', still available as an English translation from specialist bookshops.
