The leaves of this tree are very distinctive, one side is dark green and the underside is light, almost white. This dichotomy between darkness and light didn’t go unnoticed by our predecessors. In Greco-Roman mythology, Leuke was one of the most beautiful Oceanid nymphs, a daughter of the Titan Oceanus. The story goes that Hades fell in love with her and took her to the underworld. She stayed there for the rest of her life and after her death, Hades turned her into a sacred white poplar tree. The tree also has ties with Heracles, who is said to receive a white poplar crown after his heroic return from the underworld.
Properties: In alternative medicine, white poplar is said to have astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities
