Two metres' growth

WA EvergreenPopulus Candadensis

This is a stunning semi-evergreen poplar tree that holds its leaves into early winter when foliage is soon replaced by beautiful copper-bonze spring growth, which changes to a lovely dark green.

  • Height: 8-12 metres
  • Growth rate: 1-3 metres per year
  • Spread: 5 metres
  • Foliage: Green leaf – new foliage is copper-bronze – winter foliage is yellowish
  • Conditions: Tolerates wide range of soil condition, but will grow taller in more fertile soil conditions. Grows best in sandy/loam soils. Dislike heavy clay (most trees don’t), but if the soil is loosened and plenty of organic matter added it will help them get established. Once established, they are frost tolerant, and cope well with air pollution and can be used in coastal conditions.
  • Pruning: Generally not required
