Italian alders are fast growing and prefer poorer soils. The large, rounded leaves are beautiful and most trees will produce long catkins in winter and early spring.

It is the perfect tree if you need to quickly fill a space in the garden but it will need to be a large garden as mature trees will reach around 12 metres plus.
