Product details

Populus alba, known as White Poplar, has long been naturalised in the UK and its stunning silver / green leaves are great on a breezy day against a blue sky.

A suckering tree that thrives on wet soils, it may rapidly outgrow a garden so best planted in parkland or along riverbanks.

It is very adaptable and can be coppiced to create a lower growing multi-stem tree to make it more suitable for smaller spaces and gardens, this management option shows off its foliage to the full.

Populus alba will grow pretty much anywhere, even on the coast, with its amazing foliage display turning to yellow in the autumn.

Mature Height: 20-25m
