Golden Willow is an attractive accent tree that's perfectly suited for those moist or wet areas on your property.
This fast growing tree has glossy narrow leaves that turn gold in fall, furrowed brown bark and showy gold branches.
Golden Willow is commonly used for windbreaks, shelterbelts, and ornamental planting. In addition to looking great, Golden Willow attracts a variety of birds and mammals with its twigs and buds.
All willow are important to native pollinators each spring as they have higher amounts of pollen and nectar early each growing season when other food sources are scarce.
Note: do not plant near buildings or buried services.
Golden Willow - 1 Year Old
Greenhouse-grown rooted cuttings. True to type and vigorous.
One of our senior growers says this is the most attractive willow we grow. With such dense growth it is also well suited to a shelterbelt.
This year was such a strong growing year for this crop that we had to prune the Golden Willow to fit in the box. This tree will now have a tendency to go multistem.
