Silver Birch, is an ornamental tree that can grow from 15?25 m tall, with a slender trunk usually under 40 cm diameter (exceptionally to 1 m diameter), and a crown of arched branches. The bark is white, often with black diamond-shaped marks or larger patches, particularly at the base. The shoots are rough with small warts, and hairless, and the leaves 3?7 cm long, triangular with a broad base and pointed tip, and coarsely double-toothed serrated margins. The flowers are wind-pollinated catkins, produced before the leaves in early spring, the small (1?2 mm) winged seeds ripening in late summer on pendulous, cylindrical catkins 2?4 cm long and 7 mm broad. This tree is very productive and hardy in Northern European climates and suited to chalky soils with a high pH; the seeds were sourced from a reputable British supplier.
