Unique Fast Grower with White Bark
There aren’t that many trees with white bark and of the few that there are, even less have the graceful beauty of the Weeping Cut Leaf Birch (Betula pendula 'Dalecarlica'). If you want to add motion and romance to your garden, this is the perfect tree.
As they mature the pendulous branched begin to droop giving a ‘weeping’ effect.
Then, at the slightest breeze, the branches dance and sway animating the entire landscape. It makes you want to grab a blanket, a good book and a picnic basket and sit for a while. Champagne and straw boaters hat completely optional.
Even though birch trees are native to North America, weeping birch is native to Europe and New Zealand. We don’t know why this makes them seem even more romantic, but it does. Something about poets and hobbits enjoying the dappled shade of a weeping birch, perhaps.
The delicate, finely cut foliage turns a brilliant yellow in the fall.
This is a hardy variety that is highly recommended for lawn and park plantings, and once established, it tolerates some heat and dry spells.
This Weeping Cut Leaf Birch is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant it against a darker background or green lawn to highlight the pretty pale trunks, which will add interest to the yard.
Weeping Cut Leaf is a fast-growing birch tree that is attractive year-round, even throughout the winter, where the denuded braches make a lovely silhouette.
