Royal Frost® Birch
Betula x 'Royal Frost'
25-35 feet high x 15-20 feet wide
Full Sun to Part Shade
Make no mistake this is not a form of European White Birch that is getting hammered by the insect pest the Bronze Birch Borer. It has natural resistance to these bad guys, but what sets this birch a part is its beauty. Expect classic white birch bark with foliage that is burgundy red throughout the growing season—very visually contrasting! This birch is well adapted to Kentucky Bluegrass lawns with their frequent irrigations and not for wind-swept prairie conditions. It will perform the best with shade in the hottest part of the day.
