Betula medwediewii

The transcaucasian birch, Betula medwediewii is a handsome tree rare in cultivation. It distinguishes itself from the rest of the birch collection by being spreading and multi-stemmed, a wide low bowl of copper-sheened branches deocrated with slit-shaped lenticels. The foliage is intriguing, the upper leaves, heart-shaped and scallop-edged, turning acid yellow while the lower leaves are a rich chestnut brown with upright cones stepping down the branches.
The tree was introduced from the Caucuses in 1897.
