Alnus glutinosa, known as the common alder is known for its ecological importance, adaptability to wet or waterlogged soils, and various uses. The leaves are dark green, oval or elliptical in shape, and serrated along the edges. They turn yellow in the fall before dropping. The bark is dark grey and fissured as the tree matures. Due to its tolerance for wet soils, it is sometimes planted in urban areas, particularly in rain gardens and along water bodies, to help manage water runoff and improve water quality.

Using bareroot specimens is a cost-effective alternative to pot grown plants and allows the plants to establish their root systems before the growing season starts.

This is a BARE ROOT plant which can be planted during dormant months, usually November until March. Dispatch date varies from year to year as plant can only be lifted when dormant. This plant has exposed roots and must be planted once received.
