Dahurian Birch
Royal Purple Smokebush

Dahurian Birch is a rare and interesting ornamental with curling bark. This tree is the first to sprout on bare land and is tolerant of dry, gravelly, and infertile soils. Dahurian Birch can grow in industrial areas or exposed land as long as it has full sunlight.

This tree is ideal for landscaping, ornamental, and ecosystem services.

This tree is not well known, but is a favorite of nursery owners across the country.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Royal Purple Smokebush is an attractive and dramatic shrub. Mid-summer you'll notice feathery, purple-pink puffs of airy seed clusters that give the illusion of smoke. The contrast of these seed clusters against deep purple-red foliage will make Royal Purple Smokebush your new favorite shrub.

It is tolerant of clay soil, drought, and deer, making Royal Purple Smokebush a hardy addition to any yard. Try it in a hedge, shrub border, or as an accent shrub; regardless of how you use it, this shrub will be a head turner.
