The White Poplar or Abele is a large suckering tree of very fast growth for tough conditions with attractive white down on the underside of the leaves. Lovely in autumn when the leaves turn butter yellow.
Makes an extremely vigorous large narrow tree with white on the undersides of the leaves. The leaf buds have a fabulous balsam scent in spring which carries far on the breeze. Ideal for creating a quick screen effect.
The Golden Poplar is often later into leaf than other poplars but well worth the wait for the clear golden yellow foliage. In the autumn the display continues with deep butter yellows. Makes a good sized upright tree.
