Comments: A cascading, small tree that may be used as a focal specimen. Particularly effective with water feature. Likely to be relatively short-lived as are most river birch trees. A lot of seasonal interest from tree because of its form, in leaf during the summer, autumn color and in a deciduous state in winter.
