Willow Tree Listing
This list describes the Willow (Salix) trees that we generally grow in our bare root nursery. Due to vagaries of production and demand however not all of the trees listed here will be available every year.
For the current list of trees available for the coming winter please go to the 'Price List'. This is updated in March or April each year.
For more information about bareroot trees please see the 'About Bareroot Trees' page.
Please enquire if the tree you are looking for is not listed - we may be able to help.
Salix babylonicaUp to 12m x 12m.* The classic waterside statement of cool and green, the cascading branches personify falling water itself. Needs plenty of moisture to be at its best. Willows are not generally suitable for small gardens as they have invasive root systems. However in larger areas near water they can be delightful and help with erosion by stabilizing the area. They will tolerate any kind of soil as long as there is adequate moisture.
Golden Weeping Willow
Salix chrysocomaUp to 12m.* More colourful than the common green weeping willow with golden flowers, branchlets and strong autumn colour but not quite as weeping. Also needs adequate moisture to perform but will grow in most soils.
Salix matsudana torulosaUp to 12m.* An upright cool, green Willow in summer which reveals bizarrely twisting branches in winter; prized for floral arrangements. Same cultural requirement as any Willow.
