The Leaves

Firstly, the leaves of the Silver Birch are small, triangular or diamond-shaped, and softly serrated along the edges. They are a vibrant green colour in spring and summer. The leaves of the Silver Birch turn a beautiful golden yellow in the autumn months. The fluttering of the silver birch leaves in the breeze is wonderful. No other bonsai seems to have quite such a beautiful gentle movement. The leaves create a gentle rustling sound in the breeze due to their fine texture.

The Bark

Secondly, one of the most distinctive features of the Silver Birch is its striking silvery-white bark. This bark peels off in thin, papery layers, revealing new layers underneath. The contrast between the mahogany lower layers and silvery layers is beautiful.

The Flowers – Catkins

In spring, the Silver Birch produces long, trailing catkins. These catkins contain both male and female flowers. The colour of the catkins varies depending on their age. Initially, they are a yellow colour then fade to green before turning a deep brown as they mature. Silver birch catkins typically appear in early spring, before the leaves fully develop.
