A small deciduous tree native to England, the Betula pendula Youngii or Young's Weeping Birch is distinguished by its weeping, elegant and fine habit. Its very flexible branches arch to the ground forming a sort of natural parasol. Its bark initially brownish-black turns silvery white dotted with gray lenticels over the years, which gives it a decorative appeal all year round.

An ornamental tree of moderate development, the Betula pendula Youngii reaches a height of 4 to 6 m in adulthood for a spread of 4 to 5 m, it is ideal for small spaces. Its light green leaves almost entirely cover the branches, turning golden yellow in the fall. It flowers in April-May giving yellowish male catkins and greenish female catkins. Its fruits are kinds of hanging cones that contain winged seeds.

Easy to cultivate, resistant to diseases and with good hardiness (down to -30 ° C), Young's Weeping Birch settles in normal, cool, well-drained, preferably acidic soil, exposed to the sun or to mid- shadow. It is fairly resistant to drought. It does not need to be pruned.

The Betula pendula Youngii is generally planted in isolation, this is how it best reveals its elegant graphic silhouette.
