Salicaceae
The white poplar (Populus alba) is a large sized deciduous tree often found growing in areas with watercourses (e.g. Wied il-Qlejgha, Wied il-Luq). It has characteristic leaves, 3 to 5-lobed, ovate to rounded, a greenish upperside and a lower silvery white underside; in windy days this disparate colouration produces interesting visual effects as the leaves appear to shimmer. The tree trunk is greyish green and has characteristic marks.
