Native to North America, Betula nigra 'Heritage' 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.

Supplied Size: 3L pots (approx 3 years old, 80 - 100 cm tall)

  • Position: Full sun or light, partial shade.
  • Soil: Any fertile, moist soil which does not become waterlogged. This Birch does not particularly enjoy or grow well in soils prone to drying out!
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate
  • Habit: Densely branching, spreading large shrub / small tree.
    • Height: 10 - 15 m (32 - 50 ft)
    • Spread: 8 - 10 m (26 - 32 ft)
  • Notes: For best effect, the bark should be scrubbed gently with a hand brush and water once a year. This removes any green algae or grime and helps to restore the colour.
