Old Field Birch


Betula populifolia
«Les Semences Marie-Victorin» suggests a collection of native plant seeds that will entice the amateurs for the products of our horticultural heritage.
The Betula populifolia has red only the name because its decorative bark is perfectly white with large triangular black markings. Suitable for sandy and poor soils, it is perfect for places that were once bare and need to be refurbished.
