Birch ‘Whitespire’

Betula platyphylla japonica ‘Whitespire’

Tall and stately, with a straight trunk reaching up toward the sky, Whitespire presents its own best showcase for the chalk-white bark that decorates its trunk. Unlike many other Birches, Whitespire’s showy bark does not exfoliate and its strong, central leader promotes a refined pyramidal form. Bright green leaves and dangling catkins provide summer interest, with green foliage merging into brilliant yellow for fall color.
