Populus candicans Aurora - Variegated Poplar

Variegated Poplar

This used to be a very popular tree in Irish gardens, boasting many uses, such as a wind-hardy shelter or privacy screen, with quick growth and stunning colour. Thankfully this lovely ornamental is making a comeback. If left unpruned it can form a tall spreading tree up to 40ft, but in order to keep its exceptional variegation, it is best pollarded every 2-3 years. As its leaves break, it reveals striking young foliage, pink, cream & green, and from late May into early August the large leaves show off the stunning white splashed leaves, with light spots of pink.
