Description

Also called Italian poplar

Attractive and fast-growing!

Plant these lovely, column-shaped trees 10' apart for summer shade or 5' apart in a line to create a windbreak – opposing winter wind even when the leaves have dropped. A natural, eco-friendly way to save on cooling and heating costs and control soil erosion.

The Lombardy Poplar blooms inconspicuous red flowers in spring and does not set fruit. Gorgeous golden foliage puts on a show in fall. Grows 1-5' per year once established. Matures to be 50-60' tall. This landscaping tree is cold-hardy.
