Prairie Sky Poplar
no image

Prairie Sky Poplar is a fast-growing columnar hybrid poplar developed at Agriculture and Agri-food Canada's Morden Research Station. It is adaptable to many soil conditions and seems to do best in the southern-most parts of the prairies.

Good as a shade or shelterbelt tree, it is often used in buffer zones as a visual screen or hedge. Ideal for lining properties, roads, etc.

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.
