Columnar Swedish Aspen
Populus tremula 'Erecta'
Pronunciation: POP-yoo-lus TREM-yoo-luh ee-RECK-tuh
|Description||Flat, rounded green leaves flutter and rustle in the breeze providing both visual interest and soothing sound to the landscape. Very narrow form is great for small spaces, as a tall screen, and for lining a drive. Well-adapted to very cold climates. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 40 ft. tall, 10 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Privacy Screen, Windbreak|
|Design Ideas||This is a superior tree for cold northern regions. It is most attractive in groves, and as components in windrows and shelterbelts. It will stand alone as a columnar tree in the suburban environment. Tall narrow form is ideal for filling gaps between tall buildings. Somewhat adapted for street and boulevard planting. A great foreground tree against dark background of evergreen conifers. Ease of cultivation is suited to naturalistic plantings in prairies or open space habitat.|
|Companion Plants||Blue Spruce (Picea pungens); Anemone (Anemone hybrids); Yew (Taxus); Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Sumac (Rhus aromatica); Currant (Ribes)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Best planted on north or east facing sites; avoid hot and dry exposures. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
