BETULA utilis var. jacquemontii
Whitebarked Himalayan Birch
White-barked Himalayan birch is a pyramidal, deciduous tree native from the Himalayas into southern China. Best known for its striking chalk-white bark, which provides year-round interest, it also features dark green leaves which turn yellow in fall. Several cultivars are available to include 'Grayswood Ghost', which has superior clean white bark and yellow fall color. Himalayan birch prefers full sun or light shade and reasonably fertile, well-drained soil. It works well as a specimen plant or in small groupings.
