Info

A compact shrubby variety that will get to 10-12' high and about as wide. Put it where you can see it in the winter as its pealing bark gives texture to the colorful bark of cream and peach. Give plenty of moisture until established. A great addition to our choices.

Info

Selected by King Nursery, Oswego, Illinois, for its uniform compact habit, adaptability to various soils, excellent disease/pest resistance, and ornamental exfoliating bark. The bark character becomes evident at an early age, exhibiting colorful patterns of cinnamon-red and pale salmon on trunks and main branches. Grows to 8' to 12' in height with an equal or greater spread in ten years. No fruiting. An unusual birch, very dense and wider than tall. Excellent for hedging.
