Salix adenophylla

(Order Code N228)

O.k., I have to declare an interest - I love Salix adenophylla.
There is something about it's bizarre growth, that reminds me of modern art. and, if left uncoppiced, can grow into a shrub or a tree up to 10 m / 33 foot tall.

The young rods as well as all of the young leaves are covered in hair. This gets sparser on the upper side of the leaves as they mature, but retains on the lower side, giving the underside of the leaves its silver appearance.

A highly ornamental willow.
