Alnus glutinosa ‘Imperialis’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Slow growing and unusual, slender small tree with filigree-like, deeply cut, sea-green leaves a little like a maple. The leaves are exceptionally pretty and elegant and once established this Alder has an attractive, vaguely oriental appearance.

A classic plant for damp sites and particularly ornamental when planted next to a pond or stream!

Supplied Size: 5L containers (100 - 125 cm tall)
