Betula nigra or the river birch, as it's commonly known, is a beautiful, multi-stemmed deciduous tree that is prized for the exfoliating bark it develops as it matures. The bark peels back slowly to reveal a soft cinnamon color and provides interesting texture and intrigue in the garden. A perfect tree for wet soils, the Heritage Birch Clump variety will also tolerate dry conditions once it's established.
This tree is fast growing in full sun to part shade. We currently have the Heritage Birch Clump available in three sizes: 6'-8', 8'-10' and 10'-12' in height with roughly three trunks per pot. In the right conditions, this tree can reach 25'-30' at maturity.
