'Heritage' aka ('Cully'), has long exemplified the best attributes of our native river birch. In comparison to seedling-grown plants of Betula nigra, it is far superior in growth rate, foliage quality, and the consistency of its most notable characteristic: its rich salmon pink to creamy white exfoliating bark. It will tolerate a wide range of sites, but is an excellent candidate for excessively moist areas, where it is typically found growing naturally in the wild. One of the most heat tolerant of all our native Betula, ‘Heritage’ is an enduring landscape plant that reaches a mature size of 50' tall x 30-40' wide. Hardy to Zone 4.
