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.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
