10 x Salix alba 'Chermesina' (Scarlet Willow) 80-120cm bare root
10 x bare root 1yr old plants approx 80-120cm tall
Salix alba 'Chermsina' is a striking, fast-growing, male plant with vivid-red young winter shoots, that are encouraged by regular pruning. It produces small yellow catkins from March to May, with the leaves. Salix are fast-growing trees or multi-stemmed shrubs with distinctive narrow leaves. Many varieties have brightly coloured young stems and decorative catkins, and make attractive screens. Willow thrives in damp soil and is excellent for waterside locations. It is often coppiced (pruned hard back each year) to keep it at a small size and to encourage the new young shots, and can also be used to create living willow arches and structures.
Height: Can be copiced every two years. If left to grow unpruned: 50ft+
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
Suitable for: Screen, specimen tree, multi-stemmed shrub
Features: Colourful stems, fast-growing, good for weaving into structures
Bare root plants: These plants can be planted anytime between November and March. We keep our bare root hedging in tubs of damp compost at the nursery. If you are not planting your plants immediately then keep the roots damp (preferably in compost) and out the sun until you are ready to plant.
Please note: We may prune your plants before sending - this will encourage strong bushy growth in the spring.
