This is my favorite birch, and a wonderful shrub for the garden, landscaping, or containers. I bought one in a local nursery a couple years ago and it's done great in a container in my zone 5b, and I ordered another one from this website this summer and it's wonderful as well! Shipping was prompt and the plant arrived safely and looked healthy and gorgeous right out of the box! I ordered a smaller one, but it looks great with lots of branches and a vigorous root system.
