Paper Birch (Betula papyrifera)

The paper birch is one of the most uniquely identifiable trees due to its fair white bark.

This tree is a surprisingly wonderful additional to your butterfly garden because it not only provides shade and color, but the butterflies will gather around it to eat the bark.

The leaves will change colors with the seasons and drop in the winter, giving your butterfly garden the year-round change and stability it needs for decades.

You’ll be glad you anchored your butterfly garden with a paper birch.
