Information Only - Native to North America, Betula nigra has graceful branches and attractive peeling bark once established. The leaves are oval, glossy green and the bark tends to be pink when young before turning brown and ridged on older trees.
Once established this Birch has a natural multi-stemmed habit and is an excellent choice for planting in damp yet well drained areas, near ponds or streams.
This plant is currently listed on our website for Information Only - It is not currently available for sale. We have found Betula nigra to be a difficult plant in our arboretum. They do not seem to enjoy our heavy soils and we have no plans to grow more in the near future.
