(Lombardy Poplar)

The European countryside wouldn’t look the same without the beautiful columnar forms of Lombardy poplar spotted among the fields. Originating in Italy some 300 years ago, this male selection first served as a windbreak and as a source of building and fencing material. It bears broad triangular bright green leaves on short ascending branches. Foliage turns golden in fall, adding color and drama to the rural landscape. The flowers are insignificant. The yellowish-brown trunk typically gives rise to...

(Theves Poplar)

It bears broad triangular bright green leaves on short ascending branches. Fall color is a dull yellow. The flowers are ornamentally insignificant.

(Quaking Aspen)

Named for its tremulous leaves which flutter in the breeze to reveal their pale undersides, quaking aspen is an upright, fast-growing, relatively short-lived deciduous tree native to North America. The gray-green to whitish bark and yellow fall foliage are attractive.

Quaking aspen needs full sun and accepts almost any soil. Aspens have extensive, aggressive, suckering surface roots that can invade nearby plantings, infiltrate and damage drainage systems, and heave pavement. This tree is best...

(Lanceleaf Cottonwood)

This deciduous tree is believed to be a naturally occurring hybrid of two or three cottonwood species native to the western U.S. Its range is limited to a strip of states that covers the Rockies from Canada to the Texas, but at higher elevations than other cottonwoods. This hybrid grows beside streams, in riverine habitats, and in wetland fringes, sites where it thrives on ground water. Its extensive, fibrous roots help to hold stream banks during periods of high water. The leaves are narrow, and...

(Shrubby Cinquefoil)

Shrubby cinquefoil is a compact twiggy deciduous shrub with dainty foliage and buttercup-like flowers. Sometimes referred to as Dasiphora fruticosa, this very hardy plant is native across all north temperate regions from Asia to North America. The yellow flowers appear in abundance in early summer and continue more sparsely into fall. They contrast nicely with the small dark green to gray-green leaves. As branches age they develop mildly attractive peeling bark. Many cultivars and hybrids of shrubby...
