Betula pendula 'Laciniata'
Cutleaf European White Birch
- Deciduous tree, deeply cut leaf. Tends to defoliate in fall before species (see Betula pendula).
- Jacobson (1996) writes that B. pendula 'Laciniata' is rare in
cultivation, and that most trees called 'Laciniata' are actually B. pendula
'Crispa' (sometimes given as B. pendula var. crispa). However, Cutleaf Birch is often sold as B. pendula 'Dalecarlica', which Jacobson says is extremely rare, and wrongly applied to 'Crispa'.
