Plant Details

A dwarf compact willow with branches which are woolly white when young. Hairy silver leaves with erect golden catkins in May and June. 

A useful dwarf shrub.

Native to sub-arctic areas of Europe and Asia.

The Willow family. Attractive trees and shrubs, valuable for their colourful bark, elegant, often silvery leaves and decorative catkins in early spring. Salix vary widely in height, although even the tallest may be kept to a manageable size by pollarding or coppicing them in spring, after the catkin display. 

Willows enjoy a heavy soil but will grow in light soil if moist.

Height and spread: 75 x 75cm

Common name(s):  Dwarf Woolley Willow

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
