Additionally, it is wet soil, air pollution, and clay soil tolerant also. Plant it in full sun to part shade and in medium to moist, average soil. Avoid pruning at certain times of the year, like when the sap is running. This variety is one of the birches that are more disease-free than most of the others. It has reddish pink to brown bark that will shed and reveal a lighter inner one. Leaves will turn yellowish in the fall and will look like they are dropping.
River Birch Live Stakes is a Highly Ornamental, Low Maintenance Tree that is an Excellent Shade Producer
The cinnamon-colored bark is highly ornamental, as it sheds continually. The accumulated bark near the bottom of the tree deters weeds and other plants from growing near it. This oval-shaped tree features glossy green leaves with a silvery-white underside, gold leaves in the fall, green or brown flowers in spring, and 1-3 inch fruit. Songbirds appreciate the small, plentiful seeds, while deer browse on the leaves. Fallen leaves disintegrate easily, making less raking necessary.
