A fast-growing native shrub, with glossy, linear and dark green leaves, that can reach its full height in just a couple of years.
Produces slender greenish catkins, which open before the leaves in late winter.
Thrives on wet soils and can often be found lining the banks of streams. A position in full sun is ideal.
Value To Wildlife:
A great source of food and shelter for British wildlife and can even decontaminate the soils it is planted in!
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
