Plant Overview

A lovely dwarf willow with silvery-green-grey foliage and large yellow upright catkins in February and March.

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. 

Happy in most types of soil, including dry and wet.
