The best species of birch for much of Australia due to its incredible heat tolerance. Extraordinary shaggy paper bark peels off to reveal fresh bark with a soft salmon-pink hue. These seedlings have no graft, so you can prune down low and train a few paper-bark trunks up to create a lower spreading tree, suited to smaller gardens. Fast growth rate. This item is a Pre-order plant – despatched from late July 21.
Plant in full sun or part shade, grows well in either alkaline or acid soils, prefers moist conditions but will tolerate wet soil, as well as dry conditions and heat once established.
