Fast-growing native cottonwood. Branches tend to be more erect than the Plains cottonwood. Narrow, willow-like leaves are shiny green in summer, turning golden yellow in fall. The hardiest cottonwood; can survive above 8000′ elevation. Prefers well-drained soils. Suitable for sandy, loamy, and heavy soils but does not do well in heavy clay soils. Wide-spreading roots can be useful in landscaping to reduce erosion and slow run-off water.
