About the Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree

The Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree is a renowned native of Nebraska, adored for its adaptability and striking beauty. This narrow, pyramidal tree boasts light green leaves that shimmer in the breeze, transitioning to a resplendent golden yellow in the fall. Its resistance to leaf spot enhances its appeal, while its versatility allows it to thrive in a range of environments, from high elevations to lowland prairies.

Adaptable to heat, drought, humidity, and a variety of soil types, the Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree expands the planting range of this mountain species, offering a touch of rustic charm to any landscape. Whether planted as a specimen tree or in groups or groves for a naturalized effect, this native shade tree captivates with its elegant form and seasonal brilliance.

Growing the Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree

The Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree thrives in full sun exposure and well-drained soil, making it an excellent choice for landscapes in USDA hardiness zones 4-7. Its rapid growth rate and narrow pyramidal shape make it ideal for tight spaces, while its tolerance to wet and dry soil conditions ensures its adaptability to various landscapes. This Aspen tree is very heat tolerant and drought tolerant.

For optimal growth and performance, provide regular watering, especially during the first few growing seasons to establish a strong root system. Late winter pruning helps maintain its desired form and promotes healthy growth. With its remarkable disease resistance and low maintenance requirements, the Prairie Gold® Aspen Tree stands as a beacon of natural beauty and resilience in gardens and landscapes.
