Salicaceae -- Willow family

    R. L. Johnson

    Swamp cottonwood (Populus heterophylla) is of secondary  importance among bottom-land hardwoods. The species, sometimes  referred to as black cottonwood, river cottonwood, downy poplar,  or swamp poplar, may grow on sites that are too wet for other  native poplars. It is a difficult species to grow from cuttings,  a characteristic that limits its commercial value.
