From seed we were given by Ness Botanic Gardens which they collected from trees originally collected by Kenneth Ashburner as seed from Come-by-chance, Newfoundland, Canada. Known in that area as Michaux's birch. Where it only forms a small spreading shrub to around 50cm tall, with smooth dark brown bark inset with pale lenticels. Bearing ovate-reniform leaves to 1x1.2cm, with 2-3 pairs of conspicuous pairs of lateral veins, deeply crenate-dentate round tipped and short erect cylindric catkins. Best grown in a well drained poorly fed soil with some moisture retention in good light.
