Young’s weeping birch also known as Betula Youngii, is a graceful ornamental tree that is prized for its weeping habit and attractive bark. This cultivar is a slow-growing tree that when mature, typically reaches a height of 2 to 3 meters (6-8 feet) and a spread of 3 to 4 meters (10 to 12 feet). Its slender, drooping branches create a stunning, cascading effect that makes it a popular choice for landscaping.

The leaves of Betula Youngii are small, triangular, and toothed. They emerge in spring as a light green colour, and gradually turn yellow in autumn. The bark of this tree is white in colour and has a smooth appearance when young, but as it ages, it develops black fissures and becomes deeply furrowed, creating a striking contrast with the weeping branches.
Young’s Weeping BIrch prefers moist, well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. These trees are very hardy, tolerating temperatures up to -40 Degree Celsius which makes it suitable for even the harshest UK’s winters. Betula Youngii requires minimal pruning, although dead or damaged branches should be removed to maintain an attractive shape.
Betula Youngii is an excellent choice for any garden, small or large. It’s a stunning and versatile tree that adds a touch of elegance and beauty to any garden or landscape, making it the perfect choice for a feature tree.
