Salix mucronata woodii is a very hardy, deciduous, small willow with graceful, drooping branches that grows along riverbanks and in wet areas.
The lovely bi-coloured leaves look beautiful when the soft sinuous branches move in the slightest breeze and the leaves flutter. It has attractive, fissured bark.
Short spikes of creamy-yellow flowers, are borne from August to September (male and female flowers on separate plants, therefore only female plants bear fruit).
A beautiful addition to a water garden particularly along river banks where it occurs naturally and stabilizes the banks. Plant in sun or semi-shade.
Traditionally used to ward off lightning.
