Poplar Populus is a widespread genus in the northern
hemisphere and there are around 35 species. Like their
close relatives the willows, poplars have separate male
and female trees and the flowers are borne in catkins which
appear before the leaf buds open. Poplar catkins droop
from the twigs looking rather like caterpillars. The
male flowers of the poplars have more stamens than
those of the willows.
