Populus Nigra Italica

Lombardy Poplar, Populus nigra Italica, is a vigorous, upright tree with a very narrow canopy. They need a well drained, chalk free soil and plenty of sun.
Lombardy Poplar is not suitable for a clipped hedge. It is commonly planted in rows as a tall screen.

It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 30 metres high with a canopy just 5 metres wide. The plants on this page are young saplings, you can also buy larger Lombardy Poplar trees in standard sizes.

Lombardy Poplar plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

Browse our large tree varieties or all of our trees.

Choosing a size:
When you are ordering a large quantity of Lombardy Poplar for a big planting project, we suggest that you buy smaller plants. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and more likely to cope well with poor conditions.
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Populus nigra Italica plants:

The Lombardy or Lombardi poplar is tall, narrow tree is famous for being planted along driveways and as screening around cricket pitches. It grows very quickly and is happy on poor, dry soils. The twiggy branches are almost vertical, giving the tree a slender shape that also makes a decent barrier to vision year round.

History & uses of Populus nigra Italica:

This old variety originated as a form of Black Poplar in Northern Italy, sometime in the late 1600's. It became popular in Britain from the mid-1700's. All the Lombardy Poplars that exist today are male clones of the original tree.
