Betula pendula Fastigiata JOES ® ‘jolep1’ is an improvement of ‘Fastigiata’. “The twigs and branches are thicker and stronger and the new cultivar can be propagated through softwood cuttings. It will grow well the first year after (re)planting and it is versatile as a street tree or ornamental garden tree”. We are pleased to say it won a GOLD MEDAL at the NATIONAL PLANT SHOW and best in category for Trees! It was also shortlisted for Chelsea 2017 Plant of the Year.
