Populus nigra 'Italica'


 

Populus nigra 'Italica'
Lombardy poplar

Alternate and simple, the 2-4" leaves borne on long shoots are deltoid or rhombic-ovate in shape with crenate-serrate margins and a flattened petiole. The leaf apex is long and acuminate while the base is truncate to widely acute. Leaves borne on the shorter lateral branches are smaller and have more of a rounded shape.
