Betula Heritage River Birch Tree
An award winning nativar tree, Heritage River Birch is a choice large tree for the yard. Extremely shaggy brown bark reveals almost pure white inner bark that rivals the white bark Birch trees that you find in alpine locations. Many pretty green leaves provide a perfect dappled shade for patios and shade gardens. Usually sold in a clump of 2 – 3 trees. Host plant to over 400 types of butterflies and moths, River Birch is a must-have for the butterfly lover. Also goes by the name Cully.
Designated a Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant of Merit for its many outstanding qualities.
