Alnus incana 'Aurea' Whip 125-150cm (B)

Ultimate Height: 


A much smaller tree than its larger relatives, only reaching 10m (30ft). This is the one to grow if you are wanting a decorative form. Has striking, bright reddish-yellow or orange shoots in the winter, followed by bright yellow leaves in the spring. These fade to pale green over the summer. The catkins are conspicuously tinged with red. This a very attractive, slow growing tree, well worth a place in the garden.
