The plain silver or common birch, Betula pendula, is a fantastic landscape tree, grown for its white bark, spring catkins and pretty yellow autumn foliage. It's a fantastic choice for wildlife, supporting a wide range of species including moths and birds. It makes a fine hedge, or may be grown as a screen or windbreak. It also works well as a specimen tree in a large garden. It has a graceful, upright habit which gradually becomes weeping with maturity. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Like all birches, Betula pendula thrives in most situations, but for best results grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. It can be grown on its own as a focal point in the garden, or in groups.
