Salix Viminalis Hedging

Common Osier Willow, Salix viminalis, is a large, fast-growing waterside shrub, with dense, flexible stems and an upright growth habit. It is very vigorous, growing up to 1.5 metres per year. Salix viminalis has long, slender leaves that open following the appearance of catkins in spring.

It is excellent for growing as a low maintenance tall screen or windbreak. It is extremely vigorous and its shoots don't have enough side branches to make a "proper" formal hedge. If you want a supply of willow to weave, or if you need a screen in a hurry, it's a good choice. 

See our selection of willow hedging plants or view our full range of hedging.

Bareroot hedge plants are only delivered, during winter (Nov-March). All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Common Osier Willow hedge:

Plant Common Osier Willow hedging at 2 plants per metre, 50 cms apart.

Did You Know?

The Osier has been used widely for basket making from Europe to Asia. It is hard to tell where it originates from, because people were taking it with them as they moved around even before Roman times. It is sometimes called basket weaving willow because it is so useful for making wicker items. Osier willow has matted, fibrous roots, so it is often planted along riverbanks to help reduce soil erosion.
