Sandbar Willow
Golden Weeping Willow

Sandbar Willow is a deciduous species native to much of North America. This mid-sized, fast-growing shrub can be found in very wet areas, making it an ideal plan to use in a wet area with erosion risk.

Sandbar Willow has long, narrow green leaves, and its grassy narrow stems give it an attractive, bamboo-like appearance.

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.

The Golden Weeping Willow is a cultivar with bright yellow twigs and an attractive weeping shape. It is one of the most popular willows, with high ornamental value.

The Golden Weeping Willow has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, then the leaves turn a golden-yellow in the fall. The brown bark is furrowed and the overhanging branches keep their yellow tone, so they also have significant winter interest.
