Description

Stakes. Sold in bundles of 10. (36 inch cutting)

At a Glance: This vigorous-growing large shrub or small tree can grow up to 18 feet in height.  Its leaves are oval.  They are glossy medium green with whitish blossom on the underside. 

Appeal: It has shown to be tolerant to seasonal flooding.  Does well in partial sun to partial shade.

Conservation Uses: Pacific willow is an excellent species for stream banks and riparian area restoration.  Its size and stature can provide shade along stream, reducing in-stream water temperatures. Helps control bank erosion.

Helpful Tips: As with any new planting, it should be watered during the dry season for the first 2-3 years until it becomes established.  Plants should be spaced 4-6 feet apart and one should expect some mortality.
