Is this a garden or indoor potted plant are you in the UK
This is quite possibly Populus x candicans 'Aurora'
I'm being a bit cagey because these poplars do hybridize and there are a few other cultivars along the same lines.
Also, the names themselves are a bit of a grey area, in that:
- Populus x candicans and P. blasamifera f. candicans are both 'accepted' by The Plant List (very highly rated reference).
- some sources treat P. candicans as a synonym of P.balsamifera
