SWEDISH COLUMNAR ASPEN Populus tremula 'Erecta'
The Swedish Aspen is a strongly columnar tree closely related to the native trembling aspen. It is fast growing and provides a strong accent where there isn't room for a broader tree.
Shade tree: Height 9m (30ft).
Foliage: Circular leaves are green on both sides with a wavy margin.
Fall Colour: Yellow.
Comments: The Swedish Aspen typically grows three stories tall with a width of six feet or less. It is truly unique. The uppermost branches of this tree often have a twisted appearance.
