Product Description

Cotton Wood Tree - Size is 1-3 Feet in Height

 
The Cotton Wood tree's seeds resemble cotton tufts, a feature that is responsible for the plant's name. With over ten species available throughout the United States, the tree is known by other names and is frequently referred to as a poplar tree. It is a member of the willow family and is frequently found growing near water. This deciduous tree's leaves are bright yellow in autumn and bright green in spring and summer. The leaves flit in the wind. This attribute makes it an attractive plant that is also used for shade. Indigenous to the United States, this tree survives in many regions, most notably in the Plains states where few other trees thrive. 

Aside from the billowing seeds and dancing leaves, the tree is known for its practical uses, both historically and in the present. When not found in a landscape or natural setting, this hardwood tree is grown for pallets and paper. Historically it was used for buildings, canoes, medicinal teas and forage as well as for shelter and shade.

The tree's bark is rutted, rough and takes on a silver tone. This feature, along with the plant's immense crown, provides dramatic winter silhouettes. However the tree's grand size requires space to grow and access to water. it It is easy to care for once established.

The cotton wood tree spreads by seed but they also self-propagate. Limbs that fall in water will sprout and form other trees.
