Crack Willow Trees - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee

Crack Willow, Salix fragilis, is a large, wide spreading deciduous waterside tree with dark green leaves and catkins in spring. It is called the Crack Willow because its branches break easily in the wind. These will grow into new trees if they land in damp soil from late spring to early autumn.
Crack Willow is not suitable for a clipped hedge.
It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 25 metres high.

Crack Willow plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Salix fragilis plants:
This large, vigorous tree has beautifully fissured bark when it is mature and an upright canopy. Fallen branches are so good at rooting in wet soil that in some parts of the country, a single crack willow has cloned itself for long stretches of river bank. All willows are good for bees and butterflies.

History & uses of Salix fragilis
This tree is closely related to Salix alba.
