Poplars grow along riverbanks and in forests, but are also often planted along country roads. They grow to a height of about 30 to 45 meters. The bark is often grey and the leaves triangular, heart-shaped or ovals. The flower heads are stalked drooping catkins. The fruit contains seeds surrounded by a long, dense fluff of hairs.

The poplar belongs to the willow family. In Europe, the silver, trembling and black poplar are widespread. They are often grown for wood, paper and energy. One tree can produce up to 25 million seeds per year and can live up to 200 years. Unlike poplar pollen, the fluffy seeds, also known as poplar wool, are safe for allergy sufferers.

Pollen season

Depending on the location and species, poplars flower between February and April. However, the peak flowering season is in April.

Possible cross reactions

Very often willow but also nuts, seeded and stone fruits, carrots and celery.
