Sundancer Poplar
Black Cottonwood

Sundancer Poplar is a new, fast-growing, disease-resistant, and columnar variety of poplar tree developed at the Agroforestry Center in Indian Head, SK.

It is adaptable in many soil conditions and seems to do well across the prairies with extra popularity further north, in part due to how hardy it is.

Ideal for lining properties, roads, etc. to give an attractive visual hedge.

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.
