A very rare birch tree, Betula medwedewii 'Gold Bark' has deeply veined dark green leaves which turn bright yellow in autumn before falling. The bark turns attractive shades of bronze, gold and brown as it matures. In spring curious, upright catkins appear on the branches. 

A small tree with a reasonably compact and bushy habit which makes Betula medwedewii 'Gold Bark' ideal for gardens or areas with limited space. A good tree for patient gardeners as its slow growing nature does not give instant gratification!
