A change from the traditional silver birch, the black birch makes a striking specimen plant for medium-sized gardens, although it isn't as the name suggests black. Its bark peels attractively in papery sheets creating a bold effect during the winter months that will rival any flowering plant at this time. It is an exceptionally beautiful specimen tree, even more impressive when several are planted close together to make a small clump, and stands out quite startlingly against a foil of dark green woodland or evergreen hedging. In autumn the foliage is vivid yellow.
