Pussy Willow (Hedging)

£1,399.99

Also known as the Goat Willow, Pussy Willow is a deciduous shrub or small tree which makes a great addition to mixed wildlife hedges or planted as an informal screen. Well known for its soft grey, furry catkins which appear in early spring on bare branches, the flowers which emerge are a fantastic source of early pollen and nectar for bees. Unlike the usual slender leaves of willows, the leaves of Salix caprea are deep green and oval shaped with pale undersides. An attractive hedging plant for a sunny spot, the Pussy Willow tolerates drier soils than its cousins but also thrives in moist soils making it a versatile choice for any garden. Height: 12m (39′). Spread: 8m (26′). Supplied as 60 – 90cm bareroots (24 – 35). Planting Distance: 45cm (18)
