Fox Valley® River Birch (Betula nigra ‘Little King’)

A unique dwarf selection of a popular landscape tree. Refreshing, bright green foliage turns golden-yellow in fall. Colorful exfoliating patterns of bark in salmon and cinnamon-red become evident at a young age. Useful as a specimen when space is limited, in low-maintenance landscapes or as a screen. Excellent resistance to bronze birch borer. Our trees are grown from tissue culture and tend to grow quite vigorously when young.  Available in a #5 container.  Our stock is always changing so please call for current availability.
