I love the color of the leaves on this cultivar, but it hasn't grown much since I bought it last year. I may turn this to a positive if it ever starts to grow. The leaves also tend to burn and lose vibrant color as summer goes on.

EDIT December 2010: I got this cultivar in 2005, after little growth that year, transplanted I think in 2006 in a sunnier spot. Showed a little better growth in the past few years, including showing its suckering ability, started popping up 7ft from the mother plant in just a couple years. So it may not grow as fast as the common White Poplar, but the Golden White Poplar will run, and with its golden/whitebacked leaves, probably one of my most beautiful trees.
