Betula pendula Golden Beauty is a medium-sized, deciduous tree with an elegant narrow, pyramidal or conical habit. An exquisite golden-leaved form of common Silver birch. Beautiful for its yellow-green serrated foliage, which doesn’t scorch in sunlight, and attractive silvery white bark. Autumn colours are orange, red, and purple. Betula pendula Golden Beauty is easily grown in any type of soil, but prefers moist, slightly acidic, well-drained soils, in full sun or partial shade. It is resilient to a wide range of conditions. Tolerant to chalk, clay, drought. Great choice for cities and urban gardens since it can withstand air pollution. Thrives in cool northern climates. Low maintenance, doesn’t require any pruning. European White Birch is a lovely, elegant tree with golden leaves and beautiful white bark. It is perfect as a specimen plant, a small landscape tree, or planted in beds and borders.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
