An elegant and slender tree with downy shoots bearing green oval shaped leaves.
Male and female catkins are found on separate trees, that open before the leaves.
In autumn they provide a wonderful yellow colour before they fall.
Light, infertile soil. Does well on poorly-drained peat.
Value To Wildlife:
Seeds are popular with small, seed-eating birds.
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.
