A favourite multi-purpose tree, this betula cultivar is a vigorous tree that is grown for its snowy white bark. It looks stunning all year round, but especially on grey winter days when it really stands out in the bare garden. In early spring, the tree produces yellow-brown catkins that can be over 15cm (6in) in length. Avoid growing on poor chalky soil as this can make the leaves turn yellow and sickly.
