Assiniboine Poplar
no image

Assiniboine poplar is a tall, fast growing tree that has a shapely oval form and dense foliage. This hybrid poplar is a male clone and produces no fuzz or fluff. Assiniboine poplar can handle tough conditions such as: urban pollution, environmental salt, drought, poor soil, and even some standing water.

Bred by Jeffries Nurseries, the Skyfest is a fast growing, tall cottonwood with excellent disease resistance and adaptability to many kinds of soil. In the fall, its leaves turn a golden yellow.

This species has an aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting close to buildings but very drought resistant and an excellent choice for shelterbelts.
