Heritage River Birch

Betula nigra ‘Cully’

HERITAGE, is a vigorous, fast-growing, medium-sized tree that can be grown as either a single trunk or multi-stemmed tree and features salmon-cream to brownish bark that peels to reveal a creamy white inner bark that can be nearly as white as the white-barked birches. Multi-stemmed trees form a more irregular crown and are generally considered to be the superior growth habit for this species. River birch is perhaps the most culturally adaptable and heat tolerant of the birches. Prefers moist, acidic, fertile soils but is also adaptable to dry soil conditions. Good for wet soils along ponds, streams or in low spots.
