Salix Fragilis Hedging

Crack Willow, Salix fragilis, is a large, wide spreading deciduous waterside tree with dark green leaves and catkins in spring. The 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. Salix fragilis gets its name because its branches break (relatively) easily in the wind. 

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

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).

History & uses of Salix fragilis

This tree is closely related to Salix alba.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
