Poplar: Heb. libneh, "white",
(Genesis 30:37; Hosea 4:13) in all probability the storax
tree (Styrax officinalis) or white poplar, distinguished by its white
blossoms and pale leaves. It is common in the Anti-Libanus. Other
species of the poplar are found in Palestine, such as the white
poplar (P. alba) of our own country, the black poplar (P. nigra), and
the aspen (P. tremula).
