Young's Weeping Birch (Betula pendula 'Youngii'), a compact, strongly weeping cultivar of the Silver Birch (Betula pendula), an extremely hardy Eurasian tree widely cultivated for its silver-grey bark.

'Youngii' is also sometimes grown on its own roots and can then become a large tree with a more open growth habit.
