Black Willow

The Black Willow tree, Salix nigra, is a small (sometimes shrub like) to large, short-lived, deciduous tree. It is fast growing and may reach maturity within 30 years. Other names sometimes used are swamp willow, Goodding willow, southwestern black willow, Dudley willow, and sauz (Spanish). This tree usually obtains a height of about 50 feet. Black willow roots are shallow and laterally extensive making them an excellent choice for stream banks and wet locations.


Willow Hybrid

The Willow Hybrid tree, Salix Willow Hybrid, also called a Hybrid Willow, will, on average, and under normal conditions, grow six feet per year. Under ideal conditions and on good sites the growth rate is even faster, up to twenty feet a year. Planted as a hedge, screen, windbreak, or to line a road or drive, you can expect this tree to be over 20 tall and 15 wide in just three years. Many homeowners use this tree as a shade tree because of its fast growth and quick shade.


Weeping Willow

The Weeping Willow tree, Salix Babylonica, is a rapid growing yard or landscaping tree. When mature it exhibits graceful wide spreading branches. The Weeping Willow has pendulous weeping branches, a short trunk, and has a broad rounded crown. This deciduous tree has leaves that are thin and narrow, sometimes with whitened or silky undersides. The Weeping Willow trees are mentioned many times in literature and poetry from the time of Shakespeare. It is graceful, grows fast, and adaptable.


Corkscrew Willow

The Corkscrew Willow tree, Salix matsudana, 'Tortuosa', is a small to medium-sized, upright spreading tree of about 30 feet in height with a 15-foot-spread. This deciduous tree is also known as Tortuosa or Dragon's Claw Willow. The main ornamental feature of this plant is the contorted and twisted branches and twigs. Corkscrew Willow trees tolerate any soil, especially wet soils with poor drainage. It is a fast growing tree with narrow light green leaves.


Flame Willow

The Flame Willow, 'Salix Willow', gets it's name from the stems that turn red in late fall and lasts until early spring. It grows multistemmed, more like a shrub, unless trained otherwise. The Flame willow is very hardy and responds well to pruning. Plant these as specimens or in a line along a border. They grow fast and can be planted as privacy screens where the fall color will be fabulous!
