River Birch

Betula nigra

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.
