We first saw this remarkable fastigiate poplar in Norway where it was flourishing despite the bitterly cold winters. Populus tremula 'Erecta' is a striking, remarkably narrow, fast growing tree with pretty, rounded leaves which turn golden-orange and a rich burgundy-red in early autumn.

A highly ornamental standalone tree, this also looks fantastic when several are planted near each other (with a spacing of about 1.5 - 2 m apart) as a tightly packed group.
