New Cottonwood Tree Leaf 4636

Alamo is the Spanish name for the tree that English calls cottonwood and that botanists know as Populus deltoides. This tree readily springs up near sources of water, so it’s not surprising that on September 4th I saw several cottonwood saplings near the pond between Dessau Rd. and Knowell Dr. in a new subdivision on the Blackland Prairie in northeast Austin. I don’t know what the red spot on the leaf was.
