Quaking aspen's best features include its golden fall color, fast growth rate, and ability to naturalize readily. Aspen are recognized by their small, pointed/circular, deep green leaves that tremble silvery in the slightest breeze and their stark white bark. Aspen are at home in consistently moist, well drained soils where they can colonize and naturalize freely. Aspen are intolerant however of urban conditions but can tolerant varying soil types. Summer Shimmer™ has reportedly better disease resistance than the species. This native tree does best in areas where summers stay cool.
