Heritage Birch


The river birch is renowned for its fantastic peeling bark in colors of white, brown and more creamy white than the other type of birches. It also has great fall color. Heritage River Birch (clump) features subtle chartreuse catkins in early spring. It can handle wet areas and will absorb enough water to help dry them out. The pointy leaves turn an outstanding yellow in the fall. The peeling creamy white bark is extremely showy and adds great winter accents. Heritage River Birch (clump) is a multi-stemmed deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form.

This is low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may ‘bleed’ sap if pruned in late winter or early spring.
