Grown for its beautiful "exfoliating" (peeling)
CINNAMON to WHITE BARK and its gorgeous DEEP-BURGUNDY leaves!
Our area is the furthest South in which 'Royal Frost' may be planted
Leaves turn a spectacular range of colors - RED, ORANGE, YELLOW &
PURPLE - before dropping for winter. Leaves reappear in early spring.
'Royal Frost' is said to be a vast breeding improvement over an
earlier introduction, 'Crimson Frost'.
'Royal Frost' grows quickly to mature at about 30' by 15-20' wide.
Expect 2-3' of growth a year.
In our area, plant in a spot which receives a bit of shade from the
hottest part of the afternoon summer sun. In Asheville, NC and
further North, you may plant in all-day sun.
All birch have vigorous root systems. Plant 100' away from septic
systems. Plant anywhere if you have sewer service.
