Planting and Application:

Over time, Young's Weeping Birch becomes a dynamic, sculptural element in your garden with showy white bark. This might just be the perfect "pint-sized" accent tree to enjoy reflected at the side of a pond or water feature!

  • Encourage garden guests to linger near your Young's Weeping Birch by planting it on the south side of an outdoor seating arrangement. Go ahead and push out into your lawn with a planned entertainment area to squeeze every drop of enjoyment from your investment in real estate!
  • Try a series of these charming trees as a large-scale privacy screen. Mix with evergreen trees and shrubs for year-round coverage.
  • Perfect for small space gardens, Young's Weeping Birch serpentine branch structure performs best in mulched garden beds. Plant them 20 feet away from concrete and sidewalks, and love on their unique, sculptural appeal.
  • This specialty weeping tree commands attention with golden fall color, as well. Allow it to shine in a garden vignette at a curve in your garden path...uplight into the canopy with exterior lights to show it off at night, as well!
  • Birch trees are favorite wildlife trees for birds, who love taking shelter in the luminous branches. Luckily, deer tend to leave them alone, although we do recommend you use repellent on planting day and reapply per the label instructions.

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Keep Young's Weeping Birch happy and stress-free with rich, slightly acidic soil. Add a three-inch layer of pine bark mulch spread well past the canopy...and reapply as needed every few years.

  • These cold-hardy trees will thrive in either full sun or partial shade with at least four hours of light a day. Ensure they stay evenly moist with a regular schedule of supplemental water in dry weather.
  • Protect your investment with Nature Hills Root Booster used in the planting hole. Get expert planting tips from the NatureHills.com Horticulture team.
  • Wait until after the sap is finished rising to prune your Young's Weeping Birch. The best time to correct shape and reduce size is in late summer or fall.
