A lover of damp woodland, the Grey Willow has appeal throughout the seasons.... Young shoots are yellow and red, which then develop a fissured diamond patterning as they mature.
Long oval shaped leaves form from spring to autumn, then rounded, silvery catkins are produced in the winter months; male and female catkins are found on separate trees, that open before the leaves.
Grow in any moist well-drained soil types and position in full sun.
Value To Wildlife:
Both the leaves and catkins are a great food source to caterpillars, bees and other pollinators and insects.
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.
