The wooly, soft leaves of Salix candida

Salix candida

(Order Code K141)

Salix candida is a plant from North America,
a very ornamental willow which grows into a small shrub
between 1 and 3 meters / 3 to 10 foot in height.

The hairy rods are stunning and remind of deer antlers.
The leaves have a soft, downy appearance due again to extensive coverage with short hairs.

A further feature of this willow are the very large buds.

A willow especially for tactile people
- you can run your hands forever over those leaves!
This is a male clone, which flowers from March onwards.
