Product Details

Populus nigra Italica, known as Lombardy Poplar, was introduced into the UK way back in the 1750s and is a well-known screening and riverbank tree.

Its erect columnar habit makes it a fine architectural tree and it thrives on most soils including those prone to lying wet in winter.

A fast growing tree, Populus nigra Italica can put on up to six feet of growth a year so best not to plant within 20 metres from a house.

Mature Height: 20m+
