The silver coloured bottom of a gray poplar leaf

Grey Poplar | Populus × canescens

The leaf of this poplar has a greyish underside, which creates pretty colour effects in the wind.

The gray poplar is a fast-growing poplar with a particularly characteristic crown and trunk. The trunk is white-grey with black stripes and diamond-shaped grooves. On older specimens, these grooves form patterns into very distinctive eyes on the trunk.
