Salix daphnoides (bare root)

Purple willow, Violet willow (bare root 60-120cms)

Price: €0.85

This willow has purple stems and fluffy catkins, making it a good plant for winter and spring interest. Like most willows, it is best suited for boggy or wet soil and can grow next to streams or ponds. It will grow to a small tree or large shrub with a rounded crown and a height of 6-8 metres. Willow makes a useful plant for baskets, garden screens or living hedges. It should be harvested in late winter / early spring, and should be maintained by cutting down periodically to retain the good stem colour of new shoots.
