Balsam Poplar
Little Leaf Linden

Balsam Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing deciduous tree that is Native to Canada east of the Rockies.

We grow them in two variations. Sometimes they are a male clones, so they don't produce fluff. Other times, we grow them from seed, which will result in fluff. The detailed descriptions (see below) will tell you which is which.

Littleleaf Linden is a large, deciduous shade tree. Its unique, heart-shaped leaves have fine teeth on the margins and are much smaller than those of the Big Leaf Linden.

Its small, fragrant yellow-green flowers are said to have medicinal properties and can also be used to make honey. Littleleaf Linden is a great choice for a boulevard or large lot.
