A hybrid of Betula utilis and Betula albosinensis, this tree was first identified at the Edinburgh Botanical Gardens. The original tree from which the cuttings were derived, now stands at an impressive 40ft in height and spans 10-15ft wide and is over 50 years old. In maturity, it closely resembles its Himalayan Birch parent. Its upright canopy makes it particularly well suited for urban settings like bustling shopping districts and commercial streets. Its canopy allows for adequate clearance, ensuring that the dappled shade it casts wont obscure shop windows or entrances. Its white peeling bark will also contrast well with the urban infrastructure.

A resilient species that thrives in various soil conditions, including chalk and clay. It can endure drier environments showing a preference for acidic soil.
