Betula nigra Heritage

£16.95 each

Betula nigra Heritage is also listed under the synonym Betula ‘Cully’. It is a vigorous deciduous tree grown mainly for its shaggy, cinnamon-coloured peeling bark and good autumn colour.

Birch trees are wonderful for attracting wildlife; a single birch tree can support scores of insects. In autumn the trees’ soft green diamond-shaped leaves turn to a shimmering golden yellow before they fall.

Commonly known as River birch, Betula nigra Heritage is often found growing on wet soils in its native American habitat, but once established this birch tree will grow well in drier soils and it is able to survive hot summers.

If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
