Salix Kilmarnock 3 litre Pot 60cm Stem
Weeping willows are deciduous trees originating from China which are renowned for their attractive fluffy catkins in spring time and colourful bark. They were introduced to Europe and the Americas as ornamental trees and are now well recognised due to their large characteristic canopy, short trunk and lance-shaped bright green leaves. Weeping Willows form dense root-mats on the soil's surface or in shallow nearby water. They reproduce by dropping seeds which have long silk like hairs forming a small parachute. These seeds can then be carried for many miles by water or wind.
Salix Kilmarnock - Dense head of stout yellow brown shoots, very attractive in early Spring when the golden catkins appear on the drooping branches. Plant in all soils, especially poor soil. Prefers sun or partial shade
Plant Weeping Willows in moist fertile soil. They are also very hungry feeders and are particularly partial to a bit of Growmore.
