Betula utilis var. jacquemontii 'Jermyns' (Himalayan Birch)

A fine cultivar, named after Jermyns House, around which has been created the superb Hillier Arboretum by the late Sir Harold Hillier. It is a vigorous, medium sized tree with mahogany coloured young branches that turn dazzling-white with long horizontal lenticels as the peeling bark matures.

This video shows the handsome silver bark of a 16 - 18 year old tree growing in our woodland gardens on a frosty January morning.

Height (in video): approx 15 - 16 m (50 - 55 ft)
Spread: 8 m (26 ft)
