Salix Cinerea Hedging

Grey Pussy Willow, Salix cinerea, is a large native shrub or a small, stubby tree that is found in boggy ground and riversides across the country. Along with goat willow, Salix cineria is often referred to as Pussy Willow because of its beautiful catkins. Before they ripen, they are covered in neat, silver-grey hairs that look equally lovely on the bare branches or in a vase...  Salix cinerea can be coppiced and pollarded: it tends to form a fairly low tree anyway but if you want more upright growth, keep removing the lower side branches each year. Pussy Willows are the earliest to flower, providing a key source of early nectar and pollen to bees as they gear up for the year.

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

Grey Pussy 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).

Common Names: Grey Willow, Pussy Willow, Grey Sallow

History & uses of Salix cinerea: 

Grey willow is often planted along loose banks to stabilise the soil with its fibrous roots.
