Balsam Poplar
Large 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.

Large Leaf Linden is a tall, deciduous tree native to Europe. Large Leaf Linden features oblong leaves that turn from yellow-green to brilliant yellow in the fall. Large Leaf Linden is ideal as a shade or ornamental tree in a larger yard.
