Dwarf Birch

'Cesky Gold' dwarf birch is  exceptionally cold-tolerant . The new growth appears in sunset hues of yellow, red, and orange, and then cheerful chartreuse foliage carries the plant through the entire season. Allow to grow naturally, where its attractive, fan-like habit can be enjoyed, or prune it into a shape, like a low hedge.
