Varieties of Poplar Trees - Populus Species

Poplars are vigorous trees that thrive on damp soils, apart from Lombardy Poplar, which needs a well drained site. Although some of them are not very big, we don't recommend them for most average sized gardens because they have shallow, fibrous, spreading root systems that compete strongly with nearby plants. With the exception of White Poplar, none of these trees will grow on chalk.
