Product details

Betula maximowicziana, known as the Monarch Birch, has large heart shaped leaves up to 12cm in length and a dark brown trunk when juvenile.

Always great fun to identify as it catches most out in that it looks nothing like how a birch should look! Introduced from its native Japan in the 1890s, this Birch curiosity is great for collectors and arboretums.

Betula maximowicziana thrives on most free draining soils and its foliage turn a lovely yellow in autumn. 

Mature height: 12-17m
