Birch trees as seen in our Modern Pied-a-terre
It’s all about drama in the minimalist garden and the elegant trunks of birch trees (Betula) are right on the money. There are about 60 species in this genus of deciduous trees and shrubs, several with distinctive silvery white trunks like these. Plant in groups of three or more for maximum impact with a low ground cover such as ajuga or ‘bugle flower’ below, so that the eye is drawn to the trunks of the trees. Birches are frost-tolerant and not fussy about soil, but need watering during dry weather when young.
