A unique dwarf selection of a popular landscape tree. Refreshing, bright green foliage turns golden-yellow in fall. Colorful exfoliating patterns of bark in salmon and cinnamon-red become evident at a young age. Useful as a specimen when space is limited, in low-maintenance landscapes or as a screen. Excellent resistance to bronze birch borer.
