Description

Family Betulaceae.
Originating from China.

This cultivar was propagated from a tree originally grown from seed collected in Kaolan, Gansu, China. It has shining, rich red/brown bark with few white markings or lenticels, which appears to peel in wide sections, unlike some other forms that have a ‘shaggy’ look with many short peeling strips.  The dense crown of mid-green, oval tapering leaves turns bright yellow in autumn. The tree has a slender shape when young,  which broadens with age to form a wide crown.

Height and spread after 5 – 6 years 3m x 1.5m
Semi mature Height and spread after 12 – 15 years if not pruned 6m x 4m
Potential mature size after 20 – 25 years 12m x 8m
