History:
This birch is a variation on the European native that gave the forests of Germany their legendary beauty. It proved of little interest until the Victorian love of weeping foliage brought birch into the American residential landscape. This cultivar is derived from a sport of B. pendula discovered in 1767 growing in Sweden and propagated by clones.
Lore:
Birch tree bark was extensively utilized by Native Americans to create canoes and other useful objects.
