Arctic Birch, Dwarf Birch. Very cold hardy plants look like miniature multi-stemmed birch trees. Rounded green leaves, up to 3/4" long, have distinctly serrated margins. Foliage and tiny round buds are evenly spaced along thin brown stems, lending the plants a delicate air. Leaves turn yellow or red in fall and little catkins appear in spring. Has a spreading habit; trim as needed to maintain the desired shape. Very cold hardy, but not tolerant of warm southern climates (questionable above zone 5). Ideal as a little tree for fairy gardens, miniature gardens, troughs and containers. Keep evenly moist; does not like to dry out. Plants are growing in 3.5"h x 4"diameter pots. Plants are currently dormant.
