Plant Feature: Betula nigra – River Birch
Also known as: Black Birch, Red Birch and Water Birch
This month, we’re highlighting the River Birch trees that we have planted at the Low Line Gardens. River Birch trees are native to the East Coast, making them more likely to succeed in our green spaces. Naturally, they’re found close to river beds and flood plains – but they can adapt to other environments as well.
