The Himalayan birch, Betula utilis, looks stunning all year round. 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, and it bears attractive, pendulous catkins in spring.
Like all birches, Betula utilis 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.
