Birch Betula nigra
1. Shiloh Splash
Distinctive variegated foliage, small stature, and slow growth make this river birch an exciting addition for small residential landscapes. Foliage exhibits a beautiful display of ivory to white margins with medium green centers, while the trunk develops the same striking exfoliating bark as the species. Discovered by John and Daniel Allen of Shiloh Nursery in North Carolina.   Click to display 'Shiloh Splash' tag image n/a 8'-12' 6'-8' 4-8 5 Gallon
2. Summer Cascade
This river birch is surprisingly fast growing in the nursery but quickly matures to a graceful weeping habit that controls its ultimate size. In winter, it shows off its warm creamy-brown exfoliating bark.   Click to display 'Summer Cascade' tag image n/a 15' 20' 5 10 Gallon
Birch (Dwarf River)
3. Fox Valley® ('Little King')
A dwarf form of the popular River Birch with highly ornamental exfoliating bark, ideal for smaller gardens or wherever space is limited. Excellent pest and disease resistance, plus high heat tolerance. Highly useful in minimal care landscapes, where the compact, low-branching form works as an accent or in groups to create a natural hedge or screen.

Plant this highly useful small, broad tree where a miniature form of this widely popular landscape tree is desired. Situate where the highly textured bark character can be viewed, exhibiting colorful patterns of cinnamon-red and pale salmon on trunks and main branches.

Birch (River)
4. River Birch
This river bottom native also does well on upland soils. Resistant to bronze birch borer, it has nice yellow fall color, and attractive cinnamon-brown exfoliating bark for an interesting winter effect.   Click to display 'River Birch' tag image n/a 40'-50' 30'-40' 4-8 5 Gallon
