It is a plant native to the United States. The wood of the yellow poplar was used by the American Indians to build canoes, its bark to obtain infusions,
effective to combat high fever. The delicacy of the color of its flowers and the great similarity of the same with the leaves, so much so that it is often difficult to distinguish them,
have led to seeing the flower as a symbol of privacy and modesty. Retaining this value, the tree net is still used today in the United States as a church decoration for weddings.
