River Birch is hardy in zones 4-9

The River Birch or Betulaceae is a beautiful tree and can be grown in full sun or dappled shade. Soil should be moist but well-drained. It has a mature height of about 60 feet and grows to 40 feet wide. Hardy from zones 4 to 9, this graceful tree adds a touch of elegance to the garden. 


 In mature trees, the bark turns grey and becomes fissured. Covered in three-inch-long simple toothed leaves, the branches and leaves seem to shimmy in autumn breezes. These trees sometimes develop two main trunks instead of one. This form gives it a nice open feel. The leaves on the river birch turn a lovely light yellow in the fall. The tree bark peels up in many curly layers, exposing the reddish-tan underside of the bark. River birch is an excellent tree for adding a shot of color to the understated winter landscape.

 The birch tree is one of the common types of tree that is found in America. This type of tree grows in any soil, from clay to sandy soil. It is a type of tree that is commonly growing on river banks. River birch can grow from forty to sixty feet tall. It requires medium rainfall and wet rainfall to make it thrive well in different conditions. River birch blooms during April and May as it is easy to differentiate the gender of the birch tree. It blooms brown for a male birch tree during that period, and for a female, the tree blooms green. During the flowering time, it is showy bright, and attractive to the eyes. As you know, it will require the sun and shady sun for it to grow well for it to thrive.

 The birch tree is the most easily known tree to adapt to any soil, for it prefers acidic soil and semi-aquatic place to do well. This type of tree, when cultivated it can be either single or multi-trunked. When this type of tree grows and matures, it takes the shape of a shady and beautiful pyramid that it is when it is single. But when it grows more than one trunk, it takes the irregular shape seen as the best birch tree. It has a different color for its exfoliating tree bark; the outer bark can be salmon pink to reddish, revealing its inner bark, which is lighter. The leaves of the river birch are leathery and diamond-shaped. They are not significant. They are medium-dark green leaves that are about three inches long. All these leaves turn yellow during fall. The male tree appears to drop brownish catkins while the female is dropping small green catkins.
