River birch (Betula nigra) is a one of the best trees for year-round interest. With its multicolored papery bark that peels away from the trunk, this North American native species is a great choice for a driveway entrance, backyard habitat or woodland edge.
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.
