Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
POPULUS deltoides 'Nor Easter'
Eastern Cottonwood, Nor Easter Cottonwood
This male selection allows the beloved cottonwood to dwell in the landscape without shedding any pesky cottony seeds. It retains the upright spreading vase-like habit and rapid growth of this widespread North American native, which occurs in floodplains and other moist habitats over most of the eastern and central United States. The large shiny pale green triangular leaves turn yellow in fall. The extensive fibrous root system anchors the tree against floods. This tree is susceptible to damage from wind and heavy snow.
Like most of its clan this tree likes sun and moist well-drained soil and is an aggressive rooter, sending out a dense network of water seeking fibrous roots that can clog water lines. It’s best reserved for windbreaks and shelterbelts, parks, open spaces, ranches and greenbelts and other places where its size, toughness and vigor are assets.
