Product details

Salix alba, known as White Willow, is a lovely native tree that thrives on wetland sites all over the UK.

Fast growing, its silver green leaves that emerge in the spring turn to yellow as they are ready to fall in the autumn. 

Part of a willow’s game plan is to drop twigs and limbs as they mature as these can root where they land and so start again.

With this in mind Salix alba isn’t a great choice for a garden but can be routinely coppiced to keep juvenile on soils that are prone to flooding.

If left to its own devices it can reach over 20 metres tall by pretty much the same wide!

Great for riverbank and lakeside planting.

Mature Height: 20m+
