BETULA pendula 'Trost's Dwarf'
Common Birch, European White Birch, Silver Birch, Trost's Dwarf European White Birch
'Trost's Dwarf' is small in stature, featuring beautiful white, exfoliating bark and deeply-cut, thread-like leaves like other European white birches. Small greenish catkins appear in the spring and are quite eye-catching. A handsome small tree for use near water features, in the border, or in a container, 'Trost's Dwarf' unfortunately has a high suceptability to birch borer attack. Reduce the threat of attack by providing ample moisture and not planting it in hot, dry microclimates in the yard or in hot summer climates.
