Calculated at checkout

10 x bare root 1yr old plants approx 80-120cm tall



This popular willow has bright yellow young stems, and narrow green leaves. Small yellow catkins are borne in early spring. Average height if left unpruned 35ft+. 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.
