A new introduction from the United States, Betula x 'Royal Frost' has glossy, deep burgundy red leaves from spring to summer and lovely white bark once established. Unusually for a birch, the leaves can turn vivid shades of yellow, orange or red before falling in autumn (second photo).

Slow growing and not instant gratification by birch standards but a spectacular small garden tree once established with year round interest.
