A "Weeping" Birch
This beautiful tree stands beside Mr. Burbank's cottage on his experiment farm at Sebastopol. The birches are very hardy trees, and they merit a place in every park and garden; those with white bark in particular furnishing a striking and picturesque contrast to other forms of shrubbery.
This image is from: Luther Burbank: his methods and discoveries and their practical application. Volume 11 Chapter 8
