Q.Identitfying a bush

Zone 01915 | Anonymous added on July 19, 2020 | Answered

Hi I was walking along the sea shore yesterday and saw some amazing non-flowering bushes. The leaves look just like small maple leaves in shape. They are a beautiful leathery green on top and brilliant white underneath.. Also all the stems were brilliant white.

Do you know the name of this bush?

Thank you.

The closest I could find to that description is the Gray Birch (Betula populifolia) tree. If it was young and had multiple stems it may have looked like a shrub.
