White Poplar (Populus alba) is a medium-sized fast-growing native tree with a pronounced lean, displayed here. Not a parkland tree, its place here could be to provide shelter from the wind at this well-used entrance to the park and at Speakers' Corner. The extensive flat open grassy space of the park creates a good fetch for the prevailing wind. Named for the white felted undersides to the leaves that flash in the wind, White Poplar is often used for shelter on the coast because it tolerates salt spray.
