Back to Bluebell Arboretum for a look at their collection of my favourite trees, the Birches. Browse the photos below and you will see why.
Betulas are particularly popular at the moment because of an interest in coloured and textured bark. This is coupled with a surge of interest in the creation of winter gardens within major gardens open to the public, an interest influencing plantings in smaller private gardens. I thought a gallery of our favourites at Bluebell would show the amazing variations.

Great contrasts and color in these trees. Nice post (and you had blue sky that day!).
Yes, a blue sky day. None since then though – all grey sky days, many with white stuff falling out.
These are a joy to behold – my favourite tree I think!
Mine too! Can’t have enough in our garden but struggling to find any more room.
Who couldn’t love the bark on a Birch tree? Beautiful!
My birches’ bark is glowing through falling snow today – wonderful trees!
I have a giant birch that I adore, Nice to see that you have given them a place on your blog.
I just love them all! Going down to feed the chucks this morning the white bark of one of our birches glowed through the falling snow – wonderful.
