Elegant Accent Tree With Chalk White Bark

This beautiful Birch tree is wonderful choice for both front yard or backyard landscaping in colder zones. Boasting a very sophisticated look, with super white bark, and deep gray "chevrons" Whitespire Birch (Betula populifolia 'Whitespire') is deciduous tree with distinctive color.

You can choose between a multi-stemmed "clump" or a single trunk. Either choice is absolutely gorgeous. In a front yard, use as a decorative accent in front of a picture window, or to anchor a walkway garden bed. It is sure to draw the eye year-round.

In the backyard, use them to create a wonderful vista, or view, from your deck or patio. Plant several in a group, then give them space to naturalize into a colony. You'll love the look, and the polite, airy privacy these pretty trees will give you.

You might choose to leave space to run a wood mulch path between the trees. What a wonderful destination spot to include in your yard!

No matter how you use this wonderful tree, be sure to include exterior lighting in your landscape design. Point the lights upwards into the tree's canopy for a fabulous nighttime setting.

Tall and stately, Whitespire presents its own best showcase for the chalk-white bark that decorates its trunk. Unlike many other Birches, Whitespire's showy bark does not exfoliate or peel. It will create a magnificent focal point in both daytime and at night.

Bright green leaves and dangling catkins provide summer interest, and in fall, you'll love how the green foliage turns brilliant yellow.

Once established, Whitespire Birch is very low maintenance. Place your order for the Whitespire Birch, an outstanding choice for cooler zones, today.

  • Super Showy White Bark
  • Fast Growth Rate
  • Bold Fall Color
