The rich, dark leaves of White Poplar have a silver/white underside, giving an interesting effect as the tree is ruffled by the wind. A common sight in the English countryside, the White Poplar is used by farmers to provide a windbreak to protect crops. It is also happy to be kept clipped to your required height and width, so it can easily be used as a hedging plant that will rapidly form a dense screen for privacy and security.Supplied as 80 – 100 cm bare roots (31 – 39) Height: 12m (39′).
