Betula utilis ssp. jacquemontii ‘Doorenbos’ (Snow Queen)
The pure white form of the Himalayan Birch. Much sought after for its stark white bark, peeling in parchment-like sheets which are orange-buff beneath. The ghostly effect is particularly impressive in the winter or when grown against a dark background.
‘Doorenbos’ is a well established cultivar, one of the earliest to be introduced to the UK.
These are strong-growing micro-propagated trees, grown in the UK.
Height: 9-15 metres, moderately spreading crown.
