River Birch - Weeping. A delightful cascading form which is perfect for smaller gardens. Attractive fresh green spring and summer foliage that turns yellow before leaf fall. Characteristic flaking bark. Fast growing in sun or part shade. Tolerates quite a bit of moisture. Deciduous. PVR.

I purchased one of these for my own garden about a year ago as I was enchanted by the beautiful shape and fresh green leaves. I have an awkward small courtyard area that sometimes gets quite wet - this tree was the perfect choice and it is doing well.
