The Plants

Betula 'Fascination' multi-stem

Chinese birch

Photo of Betula 'Fascination' multi-stem


A lovely birch with dark leaves providing a dense sheltered canopy perfect for summer screening and dappled shade. During spring the dark leaves help exhibit its larger 15cms long catkins which hang in the wind like lamb’s tails.

Its bark is typical of the red birch, with creamy pinks and copper maturing to a brilliant white.
