Valued for its vibrant purple leaves which turn a brilliant golden orange in fall, Royal Frost is a noble addition to any Northern landscape. Its foliage is something to see as is its appealing white bark and classy pyramidal shape which breaks the monotony of traditional tree cover. This birch is a rewarding accent great for tying the landscape together and a must-plant for Northerners who love birch.

Royal Frost prefers acidic soil that is moist yet well drained and does well in sandy and rocky ground. It is sun tolerant but doesn't mind partial shade, particularly in areas with sweltering summers. Northern climates are where it thrives best. This tree does not do well past zone 7 as heat stress makes it more susceptible to bronze birch borer. Take care to watch for other common pests such as Aphids and leaf miners.
