Description

Color for cold climate landscapes.

This shrubby dwarf birch offers season-long interest with tiny yellow leaves that emerge in sunset hues of orange and red. Amenable to pruning, it can be shaped, sheared, hedged, used as a miniature patio tree, or left to its own appealing natural habit. Exceptionally hardy. Developed by Michal Andrusiv in the Czech Republic.
