Betula pendula 'Youngii'
Young's European white birch

An unusual weeping and somewhat contorted cultivar of the European white birch.

Habit:A weeping mop-like form with no central leader. Definitely catches the eye, alive or dead. I have seen specimens effectively used in pairs to draw attention to commercial entrances.
Family:Betulaceae
