Exbucklandia populnea is a very rare tree that looks like a hybrid of a maple and a tulip poplar. It is actually a member of the Hamamelidaceae from southeastern Asia. The big bright and very thick leaves quiver and move like an aspen. The new growth is reddish and somewhat showy. The flowers are small and not impressive by what photos were have seen. The enormous stipules will thrill only taxonomists.

Frightfully little of is known about the species in the west and what we have found is somewhat contradictory. We'll update this page when more details come. Still we can enjoy this pretty young tree seen at the JC Raulston Arboretum.
