Populus grandidentata, Michx. Large-toothed Aspen. Tall straight tree, becoming 75 ft. high, with brittle wood and dull gray bark which with age is marked by plates but scarcely by ridges: lvs. roundish ovate, at the apex blunt or gradually narrowed and acute, with large irregular sinuate teeth, white-woolly when young but becoming glabrous: catkin-scales 5-6-di- vided: fr. slender, long-pedicelled. Distinguished from P. tremula by much larger and thicker lvs., which are bluish or rusty white beneath, more ovate in outline, with larger and more spreading teeth, stouter lf.-stalks and larger lf.-buds. Nova Scotia to Minn., Tenn., and N. C. S.S. 9:488.—The lf .-form is variable and botanical varieties have been made from them. In its normal or erect form it is rarely cult., but the weeping kinds, under a variety of names, are frequently seen. Most, and perhaps all, of these varieties originated in Eu., where the tree, like the cottonwood and the common aspen, were early intro. The winter twigs of the weeping varieties have a characteristic weak or zigzag growth. These weeping forms are very likely hybrids, sometimes distinguished as P. tremula var. pseudograndidentata, Aschers. & Graebn. (P. pseudo- grandidentata, Dode). Fig. 3128. Buds at maturity short, thick and somewhat viscid: lvs. much like those of P. tremula but larger, 3-4 in. diam., thicker, the margin with cartilaginous edge at maturity. The forms known as P. graeca pendula and Parasol de St. Julien are by some referred to P. tremuloides, but these names have been applied in this country at least to plants of the above series. The P. graeca of authors is confused. P. grandidentata is a common tree in the E. U. S., growing under a variety of conditions, as on dryish banks and slopes and near swamps and streams.
