The lovely branches of the Salix caprea, or pussy or goat willow as its commonly known, can provide you garden with all year round interest. Stiff, arching brightly coloured shoots form a mound or 'mophead' shape in winter. In spring come long silver fuzzy catkins that open to soft silky flowers with yellow anthers, before the gracefully hanging lush foliage appears. These are grafted on an approximately 1.2-1-5m head, so the height always will remain the same, an ideal plant when a striking feature is needed but space is limited. Supplied as an 80cm bare rooted plant.

The Salix (Willow) can tolerate most types of soil, as long as it is well drained. They can also be grown in tubs or containers, making them perfect for all gardens, regardless of size available.
You can add some support to the young plants by staking them as they continue to develop a full head.
