Our native Alder carries the torch for summer throughout the dark days of winter. It is one of the last to drop its leaves in autumn, even then staunchly retaining its jolly crop of dark marble-sized cone-like fruits through the depths of winter. As early as January shimmering golden catkins appear, quickly joined by a fresh crop of leaves. In summer, Alder glutinosa has an airy semi-transparent crown that gives a dappled sunlight effect. A rapid growing, loosely conical tree with a naturalistic (if somewhat unruly!) growth habit. Superb as a multi-stem in a naturalistic setting. A shallow rooting habit.
