A well known and graceful weeping tree, Betula pendula 'Youngii' has a dome-like habit once established, with trailing branches weeping to the ground. The leaves are mid green and turn shades of yellow and bronze before falling in autumn. The bark on young trees is bronze/brown, turning dark silver in places as it ages.

The photo above shows a specimen of Betula pendula 'Youngii' in our own gardens which has been covered with Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii' and Vitis coignetiae to create a colourful autumn spectacle.

A lovely, tough and easy to grow small tree, suitable for planting in a border or as a standalone specimen.
