A widely favoured and robust ornamental birch known for its airy canopy and shimmering white bark. Sir Harold Hillier first encountered this variety in the 1960s whilst exploring the Betula jacquemontii specimens in his garden at Jermyns house. Originating from the Netherlands via Belgium, Hillier was captivated by its large foliage and impressive elongated catkins, which gracefully reached up to 17cm. This selection was named in honour of his house, Jermyns, which is now part of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens. It is here where a remarkable specimen within the grounds has grown more than 20m in height.
This clone has won an Award of Garden Merit.
