Betula Utilis Jacquemontii

Betula Utilis Jacquemontii

The beautiful winter and spring colour from – Betula Utilis Jackquemontii or Jacks Birch makes it one of Paraic’s all time favourite garden plants. This relatively small tree offers year round colour.

In early Sping the new leaf growth is a bright apple green colour later, which darkens to a rich green colour in summer before turning a butter yellow colour in Autumn and early Winter. The peeling bark produces a pure white coloured stem all year round which contrasts beautifully with the seasonal leaf colours.

Jacks Birch is easy to grow, ideal for all locations and soil types and looks fantastic when planted in groups of three of five in a lawn area. Now is the perfect time to plant jacks birch in your garden.
