The River Birch Clump is native to North America, has a graceful form, and is stunning to admire year-round. The elliptical leaves have toothed edges, a green hue on the top, and a silvery-white underside. The foliage of the Betula nigra turns vibrant yellow by fall. The River Birch Clump continues to put on a lovely exhibit after the leaves drop. The layered, peeling bark is eye-catching and puts on a showy display in winter after the leaves fall.

This durable tree can handle damp conditions that are unsuitable for many other plants. Plant the River Birch Clump along a stream or pond bank or in areas with poor drainage. This tree is useful for erosion control. The rounded, compact habit and arching branches create a full and dense form. Grow the River Birch Clump in zones 4 through 9.

River Birch Clump Care

The River Birch Clump needs at least 6 hours of sunlight and plenty of water. Damp conditions are ideal, and this tree cannot handle a drought or dry period. The ideal location will be naturally wet. River Birch needs consistently moist soil with an acidic pH. It is not a heavy feeder and only needs fertilizer every few years. Fertilize in the spring using a balanced plant food as needed.  

The River Birch Clump will rarely require pruning but you should remove dead or damaged branches as they appear. Time pruning for late fall and winter when the tree is dormant. Springtime pests can enter the tree more easily if there are fresh pruning wounds in the spring and summer.

River Birch Clump Spacing

The River Birch Clump is a fast grower and can stand 40 to 60 feet tall and 30 to 40 feet wide. Space multiple trees 30 feet apart so there is plenty of room for the branches to spread.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
