Himalayan birch, Betula utilis var. jacquemontii 'Jermyns', is a popular and extremely ornamental silver birch. It's medium-sized with an open habit and pyramidal shape. It bears almost shimmering white bark, which peels each year to reveal a fresh layer beneath. Its oval, dark green leaves turn gold in autumn before falling. Long, yellow-brown catkins appear in spring.
Like all birches, Betula utilis var. jacquemontii 'Jermyns' 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 to show off its incredible white bark.
