Grey poplar

Grey poplar

Populus canescens – Grey poplar

A cross of white poplar and quaking aspen, borrowing traits from both. The bottom of its leaves and newly grown stalks are furry white, just not as white as on a white poplar, hence grey poplar.

Like quaking aspen, due to an oddly shaped leaf stalk, leaves tremble in the wind; causing the sturdy leaves to clapper against each other. Living near a poplar sounds like living near a stream or even the beach.
