Practical Plants is currently lacking information on propagation instructions of Populus deltoides wislizenii. Help us fill in the blanks! Edit this page to add your knowledge.
A fast-growing species on moist sites, but it is short-lived. Poplars have very extensive and aggressive root systems that can invade and damage drainage systems. Especially when grown on clay soils, they should not be planted within 12 metres of buildings since the root system can damage the building's foundations by drying out the soil. This species is closely related to P. fremontii. Dioecious. Male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus.
