Eastern cottonwood is one of the few hardwood species that is planted and grown specifically for these purposes. Culture - Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers consistently moist soils, but tolerates drought. Each tree develops an extensive root system, but no clones sprout up therefrom as in the case of aspens. Twigs that stick in the ground may sprout roots and grow. Female flowers give way to dehiscent capsules that split open when ripe broadcasting abundant densely-tufted seeds. Seeds with silky white hairs give the appearance of cotton as they blow through the air and along the ground, typically collecting along gutters, curbs, roadsides and fences. The US national champion Populus deltoides var. deltoides is located in Sheridan County, Kansas and measures 96 ft. (29.3 m) tall, 127 ft. (38.7 m) wide with a trunk circumference at breast height (CBH) of 35 ft. 7 in. (10.85 m).
