A deciduous medium sized tree. Leaves are green on top and silver/green underneath with reddish twigs. An easily grown plant, it does well in a heavy cold damp soil.
Poplars have very extensive and aggressive root systems that can invade and damage drainage systems. Especially when grown on clay soils, they should not be planted within 12 metres of buildings since the root system can damage the building’s foundations by drying out the soil.
