Clump River Birch or River Birch.....Is there a difference?

karenrfJune 7, 2010

OK, I went nutz.

Lowes was marking plants down and I grabbed a few things.

I've always wanted a River Birch but is there a difference in "clump" River Birch and just a River Birch?

This looks more like a bush rather than a tree (or trees)There are many shoots in the pot.

A clump river birch is a river birch with multiple trunks. All the trunks should be from the same tree/root-system, but some cheapo nurseries stick single trunk specimens together for quick production. This practice (bundling multiple separate singe-trunk specimens together) frequently causes problems later as the trees grow and start splitting apart.
