Betula populifolia  x 'Royal Frost'

Betula populifolia  x 'Royal Frost'

An excellent cultivar for providing a dark foliage in the landscape, where it provides soft filtered shade. Has superior apical dominance and vigour in comparison with other purple-leafed birch. Ideal for planting as a specimen or in a cluster or copse, particularly when used against complimentary foliage colours and surfaces. A hybrid between Betula ‘Crimson Frost’ and B. ‘Whitespire’ that combines the best attributes of both cultivars.
