Not available online

The Lombardy poplar has a distinctive upright shape: it's a tall, fast-growing tree that is often used as a shelter-belt plant because of its height and shape. Tolerant of most soil types, including moist; it does not like to be constantly waterlogged however. It is a very hardy plant that grows ultmately up to 30 metres in height by 7-8 metres in width. Wind is not a problem for this plant, but it should not be right by the seaside. It is more suited to inland areas. Excellent autumn colour and good catkins / flowers in spring. Deciduous. 

  • Bare root plants with well-developed root system .
  • 90-120 cm tall.
  • Available November to March only.

Please note: bare root plants can take up to 2-4 weeks for delivery, due to the labour involved in their preparation, but are often delivered faster than this. We will notify you prior to shipping or when they are ready to be collected. Read more about planting and storing bare root plants.
