An uncommon weeping selection, Betula utilis 'Longtrunk' has lovely peeling white bark and gracefully arching branches which reach the ground when established. It has a fairly stiff weeping habit and benefits from being grown up a long cane to the required height in the first few years.
Once the supporting cane is removed Betula utilis 'Longtrunk' will weep from that height, making it suitable for smaller gardens as the height can be easily controlled.
It is particularly beautiful when grown next to and allowed to overhang ponds or streams.
