Populus purdomii

Described as "extremely rare in cultivation" by Grimshaw in New Trees, this Chinese species makes a healthy, upright, but relatively slow growing tree in cultivation compared with some hybrids. Leaves are fairly large and emerge red flushed in May, after frosts have passed, retaining a red petiole through the season. Young trees at the Hillier Gardens and elsewhere look distinctive, stylish and handsome.

Pot size: 2L
