Betula pendula 'Karaca'
Dwarf Cut leaved silver birch
Only discovered as a 'witches broom' around 2003, this has quickly become a very sought after birch,
I'm a huge fan of cutleaved trees, and this one ticks all the boxes Perfect for small gardens, or even large pots, beautiful delicate light green foliage, followed later in the year by buttery yellow autumn colour, equally attractive white bark throughout winter also,
