This river birch cultivar is a dense, compact, deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub with an irregular crown which typically grows to only 10′ tall with a 12′ spread. This cultivar features orangish to brownish bark which exfoliates at an early age to reveal a somewhat lighter shaded brownish inner bark. Leathery, diamond-shaped, dark green leaves (1.5-3.5″ long) with doubly toothed margins turn a respectable yellow in fall. Flowers are contained in drooping, brownish male catkins (2-3″ long) and insignificant, smaller, upright, greenish female catkins, both of which appear in spring on the same tree.
