Features

One of our hardiest plants!

Cesky Gold® dwarf birch is an exceptionally cold-tolerant dwarf birch. New growth appears in sunset hues of yellow, red, and orange, and 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.

Top reasons to grow Cesky Gold® dwarf birch:

- Extremely cold tolerant - down to USDA zone 2 (that's as low as -50F/-45.6C)

- Deer resistant

- Colorful foliage looks interesting all season
