Tristis Weeping Silver Birch Tree 

Tristis is a more weeping variety of Silver Birch (Betula pendula).  This tree is distinguished by its tall narrow stature, with pendulous twisting branches. Its white bark has balck fissures with age. Leaves are triangular to diamond shaped, bright green which turn yellow in autumn. It carries attractive greenish catkins.

Expect a final height of 6 m or 20 ft. The height you get depends on what type of garden you have. Imperial gardens grow trees in feet and metric gardens grow them in metres! 

Our Tristis Silver Birch Tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.0 metres in a 5-12 L container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

The Tristis Weeping Silver Birch tree does not weep as a young tree. We do not mean that it is a tough nut and it does not cry at the Andrex puppy, X factor slow motion replays and other emotionally charged video but that it the Tristis will start to weep under the weight of its branches as it gets older. We cannot tell you when this will be as local weather conditions and soil will dictate growth and therefore weight. A measure we do not endorse is to tie bricks to the outer branches because it then looks like you are growing them and we would get flooded with requests for weeping brick trees.  

As with most weeping trees, you can determine final height by allowing the tree to grow to the height you require and then cut the main trunk/stem. If you are going to restrict growth by keeping it in the pot and then planting it, you need to remember to feed every year. The larger the pot, the larger the tree will grow.  

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you. 

Water Logged Conditions
Willow, Alder, Birch and Poplar may help lower the water level so long as you do not have permanent standing water e.g. your local diving and sailing club meets on your lawn.

Grafting
All our Betula are grafted onto Betula Alba Pendula rootstock.
