Leaf Color and Bark

The Betula pendula 'Royal Frost' is a variety of the silver birch with red foliage. It is an elegant tree, with the older, white bark contrasting beautifully against the red leaves of the Betula pendula 'Royal Frost'.

The leaves are brown/red in summer and turn yellow/orange in autumn before falling off.



It is a medium-sized tree that is vigorous in growth. The Royal Frost can reach a height of 5-10 meters at maturity.



The young twigs are dark brown to purple in color. The older bark remains white and hardly flakes off, providing a beautiful view in your garden.


Crown Shape

The crown shape is oval, with slanting branches and strongly drooping twigs.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
