Salix alba var vitellina ‘Golden Willow’
‘Golden Willow’ is a confusing name for a willow cultivar as there are many willows with the common name “Golden Willow”. It is however a lovely willow with vigorous slender golden-yellow stems and bright yellow male catkins. Hardy to Zone 3. Dried rod color: dark tan
USES: As an ornamental shrub or as a supply of cut stems with many uses. Best if coppiced every year or two to keep a steady supply of these supple stems.
'Golden Willow’ produces lots of bright yellow slender rods useful for brightening a gray winters day;
great for basketry or cut winter stems for indoor our outdoor display.
Brilliant yellow male catkins awaiting bees to come and pay them a visit.
Between the fragrance of their nectar and their bright color they do attract attention!
