This variety is also known as the Kashmir birch, and is one of the loveliest with its intensely white bark. Some plants have cream or orange bark, which sheds itself in large sheets. To be sure of good colour, it is best to choose one of the selected forms such as 'Silver Shadow'. It is an exceptionally beautiful specimen tree, even more impressive when several are planted close together to make a small clump, and stands out against a foil of dark green woodland or evergreen hedging. In autumn the foliage is vivid yellow. It prefers a sunny or slightly dappled position, growing in fertile, well-drained soil.
