The Columnar Swedish Aspen is a breakthrough in hardy trees for screening, or as a specimen tree. It forms a beautiful, upright column that can reach 40 feet, but it will always remain narrow and so it is ideal for restricted spaces. It is fast-growing, adding a foot or more every year, and its upright form means it never needs trimming to make a dense screen or a beautiful vertical accent specimen. The leaves are red in spring, green in summer and gorgeous shades of gold and crimson in fall. This tree is resistant to pests and diseases and does not produce messy seeds.

  • Excellent upright specimen or screening tree
  • Fast-growing, durable and needs no trimming
  • Grows well in any soil and in wet or dry soils too
  • Hardy to minus 50 degrees – nowhere is too cold
  • Spectacular fall colors of gold and red will thrill you

This tree will grow in any kind of soil and once established it will tolerate both wet soil and long periods of drought. For both beauty and toughness, the Columnar Swedish Aspen cannot be beaten. Its leaves tremble in the breeze, and produce a calm rustling noise you will love. It is remarkable for its hardiness, down to minus 50 degrees, so it is a great choice for the coldest areas, and will thrive in cool or warm regions.
