Plant of the Week - Salix11 February 2011
This beautiful dwarf weeping willow is commonly used in small gardens as an architectural tree by water, containerised or in a mixed bed. They produce yellow bud and silver catkins in early spring which burst into a cascade of weeping fine grey green foliage. 2m X 2m.
It is an all round tough plant suitable for problem areas, an architectural plant ideal as a ‘stand out’ plant, attractive form and foliage for all year interest. They are completely hardy and grow in a wide range of soil types, including chalk, and will survive both full sun and partial shade.
