Hereís a photo of one in my neighbors side yard. It was nothing but a 20í tall bullwhip when Steph and I first moved in 19 years ago. It turned into a pretty nice tree since that time.

I ended up with 5 real nice young plants...had one more but it didn't look like it would make it in the woods.  I planted the 5 in a place that they should do well.  Planted them about 35 foot apart with plenty of young popular coming up in between them... I will cut the popular back as needed to get the shape I need for the ky coff. trees.  Don't want a plain shade tree type so will let the young populars make them stretch out for a while.  Put a stake by them with a red flag on top so I won't loose them.  Hope they do good.  Banjo

Its been a little over a month since I put them in their forever home.  They seem to be doing very well.  We have had a couple of weeks with no rain so today I took a little water back to them.  I gave them all a drink although they didn't look like they needed it.  They are said to be drought resistant.  Here is a couple of pictures.  I will need to open up some space for one of them, but the other 4 are getting 6 hours or better of sunlight each day.  The one in the shade looks just fine also.  I have harvested several large popular's from the area and I bet there are several thousand little ones trying to take their place.

I know why there is an old fiddle tune called the holler popular.  When they get to 20 to 24 inches around here you need to cut them or they are gona be holler.

 

 

 

  

I am going to let the little populars force them to get some height.  Thanks for the seed....you know who you are.  ;) Banjo

Well they made it through the winter.  Will be interesting to see how much growth they develop this year.

The easiest time to spot one (from the road) is when the leaves are gone but the seed pods are hanging on limbs. They seem to be found on edges similar to cherry? My local school has a row of them planted along a creek beside the parking lot.

Just found this thread. It's pretty interesting.

It is dioecious.  Male and female plants.  Some info from Native Trees of the Southeast:

"Roasted fruits or seeds were once used as a coffee substitute, but the raw seed contains poisonous alkaloids."
