The cinnamon-colored, exfoliating bark of the River Birch is spectacular in the winter. The lustrous, medium-green leaves of this Birch turn yellow in fall adding color to the landscape year round. It is the southernmost birch of the United States and makes its best growth alongside bodies of water.
