Product details

Salix alba Chermisina is the brilliantly scarlet red stemmed variety of the white willow, it is also referred to as Salix alba Britzensis.

This willow is notable for having brilliant scarlet red-orange young stems that are most attractive during the winter time.

This tree received the Award of Garden Merit in 2002 and is a tough contender that will tolerate most moist soil conditions.

Like most willow, this tree will tolerate extremely wet conditions, including planting in areas that experience regular flooding

This specimen is a great choice for planting in parkland and also gardens with the space to accommodate its large size and vigorous growth.

The bright red young shoots are particularly attractive in the winter sun against a bright blue sky and look fantastic against a dark evergreen background. T

hese multi stems can be coppiced down every winter to keep it under control.
