Description

Stakes. Sold in bundles of 10.

At a Glance: This vigorous-growing large shrub or small tree can grow up to 30 feet in height.  Its leaves are long and narrow with pointy tips.  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.

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.
