Betula potaninii

Birches are excellent trees for small gardens, with lovely fresh green leaves in spring, casting light shade in summer, usually golden yellow leaves in autumn, and wonderful bark all year, but particularly prominent in winter. The one drawback is that the roots are near the surface, so there is competition for nutrients if other plants are placed too close.

Betula potaninii is a rare species from W. China, where it is often found growing hanging over cliffs. This shrub has prostrate lower branches and distinctive, prominently veined leaves.
