Betula pendula ‘Wades Golden’ Birch


New stems are an eye-catching golden colour in autumn through winter, adding interest when the garden is bare. The older wood will be an attractive silver white and contrasts nicely against the golden new stems.


The leaves are bright green in spring and summer, turning a lovely golden yellow in autumn. The softly drooping branches will create a delicate look, and a soft dappled shade.


An upright, vigorous, deciduous tree with a broad pyramidal shape. Birches often look good when they are planted in groups in the garden and will also make excellent single feature specimens.


Plant Size: 10 m high x 6 m wide


Position and Care:

Wades Golden will perform best when planted in full sun, to part shade.


Birches are best suited to cool temperate climates and will not grow well in hot and dry areas. As with all deciduous trees, birches require a cold winter.


Birches prefer well-drained, moist, fertile soils that are neutral to slightly acidic, but are tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. Birches are hardy trees once they are established, however they will benefit from regular deep watering during dry periods.


Wades Golden is a grafted tree. Please be careful not to bury the graft union when you plant this tree. Water in well once it is planted, and water regularly while the tree is establishing it roots.
