Product details

Salix caprea, known as Pussy Willow, is a tough native tree favouring wet soils but thriving pretty much anywhere.

Fast growing, it only makes a small tree with its most attractive feature being the velvety flowers that open with a mass of yellow anthers in the spring.

Sometimes referred to as Goat Willow, its spring stems are often used for flower arranging and decorative Easter displays.

Summer green leaves turn to yellow in the autumn.

Salix caprea is better known for its weeping clonal selection, the Kilmarnock Willow, which makes a fine garden tree.

Mature Height: 3-7m
