Salix is the botanical name for Willow. Willows are woody plants that range in size from enormous weeping willows to small, creeping groundcovers. Almost all willows are easy to grow in moderate to wet soils in full sun. They grow naturally along waterways and make excellent candidates for erosion control or bank stabilization. Cut stems are extremely versatile: use them for cut flower arrangements, hedges, living structures, woven fences, or basket making.

Willows are, unfortunately, prone to a large number of pests and diseases and are not generally long lived, but cuttings root extremely easily, guaranteeing a fresh supply.

‘Whissender’, also known as Almond-leaved Willow, is a heavily flowering variety; bright yellow catkins are adored by bees in early spring. Exfoliating bark rivals that of even sycamores. This selecting is very popular with European basketmakers.

Coppice every 2-3 years to maintain a nice supply of straight stems.
