Betula albosinensis 'Fascination' is a medium-sized, slow-growing, deciduous tree with pyramidal habit and open crown. Oblong, dark green leaves emerge in spring and turn golden yellow in autumn. Small, light yellow flowers grow in pendulous catkins. The most attractive part of this plant is its bark. Creamy white bark peels off revealing beautiful shades of copper, brown and pink. Betula albosinensis 'Fascination' can grow in any type of soil, as long as it is moist and well-drained. It prefers full sun to partial shade. It grows slowly and it will take many years for it to reach its maximum height. It has shallow root with a dense root system. It is resilient, low maintenance plant, resistant to frost and winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Betula albosinensis 'Fascination' is an attractive tree because of its peeling bark. It is great for cottage, woodland, and informal gardens.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
