This cultivar has an upright, oval to rounded shape, salmon-pink to reddish-brown bark which exfoliates to reveal the lighter inner bark. Leathery, diamond-shaped, dark green leaves turn a bright yellow in the fall.
One of the most disease-free birches. Use as a specimen or in small groupings in any landscape, and in particular for wet soils along ponds, streams or in low areas. It can be grown as a single-stemmed specimen or multi-stemmed tree.
