Notes

Populus x canadensis   is a hybrid of P. nigra   L. and P. deltoides   Marshall. It occurs naturally in areas where both species grow sympatrically, but is also very widely grown as an ornamental tree. It rather grows in temperate climates and is thus less frequently seen in the Canary Islands.

In Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife, trees planted on the verge of a ravine in an urban environment have reproduced from seed. This hybrid had not been reported before from the Canary Islands ( Acebes Ginovés et al. 2010).
