Fast growing, long-lived, slender, suckering, deciduous native tree with wave-shaped teeth on round, long-stemmed leaves that open coppery-green, turning grey-green, and turn butter-yellow in autumn. The leaves flutter in the slightest breeze so much so that the trees are often heard before they are seen. Large male and female drooping catkins in early spring. Any soil, prefers moist conditions, but will grow on poor soils.
