Poplar Purple Tower

If you like your reds and purples in your garden then the newly introduced Poplar Purple Tower tree is going to be a good choice for you. Considered to be upright and pyramidal when mature which in plain English means that it is quite a lot taller than it is wide. The leaves can be up to around 20cm long and 12cm wide with dark red stems. To give your Purple Tower a better chance of producing larger leaves, prune hard at the start of Spring.

It should be a deeper shade of purple in the Summer, tailing off to a strong red in the Autumn. Now of course descriptions of colours can be subjective, so ladies, please bear in mind this description was written by an ex-engineer with a strong man brain. He cannot visualise "deep passionate hues of dying embers", that is just long hand for red! So if you call in and ask for the long-hand version of what we mean by red and purple, you will probably be told "very red and very purple".

Ultimately it "should" get to around 10m in height and "about" 3m wide. We use the quotes with trepidation because we know there are some hard-core gardeners out there that will take us to task in 10 years time stating that their Poplar Purple Tower tree had failed to grow and expand to the exact dimensions we listed a decade ago. Local conditions and weather will dictate growth rate and ultimate height.

The roots of the Purple Tower are considered vigorous so remember this when planting close to drains, especially if they are old clay ones.

Best to plant in full sun in fertile soil and is considered UK hardy to frost which usually means it will be ok to around minus 15 degrees centigrade.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season. 

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

Climate Change
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back. 

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy. 

Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details. 

Water Logged Conditions
Willow, Alder, Birch and Poplar may help lower the water level so long as you do not have permanent standing water e.g. your local diving and sailing club meets on your lawn.
