Product Description

Zones: 4 to 8
Mature Height: 70 feet
Mature Spread: 30 to 40 feet

Exquisitely rich red-brown to orange-red exfoliating bark. Upright rounded form. Dark yellow-green leaves turn bright gold in fall. Its light, copper-brown, shiny bark and golden catkins make it a very attractive tree all year round. These birch trees have an open habit, making them excellent to garden under. They can be single or multi-trunked. They are not recommended for very small gardens as they need plenty of room to mature.

When choosing a location, keep in mind that the chinese red birch has a moderate to fast growth rate. This variety grows up to 70 feet in height and 30 feet in width. It can be planted in zones 4 to 8. They prefer moist soil and should be planted where there is full or part sun. Avoid planting in very compacted soils.
