Assiniboine Poplar
Black Cottonwood

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.

Black Cottonwood is the largest and tallest of the North American poplars. Named after its white, fluffy seeds with cottony hairs, this hardy tree produces sticky, fragrant buds and has a straight growth habit. Black Cottonwood needs ample moisture and nutrients to grow successfully to full height and are found in the Western provinces and the Yukon with BC being its heartland.
