Salix alba Britzensis

The Red Willow tree - Salix alba 'Chermesina' or ' Britzensis' - is also called Coral Bark Willow. The fantastic, yellow, red and orange colour of the young branches makes a great winter display. These trees are usually pollarded to encourage new growth. Scarlet Willow can reach a height of about 20 metres.

Browse our variety of willow trees or see our full range of garden trees.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, are graded by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us.

General description of Red Willow trees:
Common Names: Red Willow, Scarlet Willow, Coral Bark Willow
Botanical Names: Salix alba Britzensis, Salix alba Chermesina
This tree is usually grown for its beautifully colourful stems, which are on display during winter. The trees on this page are delivered as large standards, suitable for pollarding at a height of about 2-3 metres. If you want a lower plant, or to prune it as a coppiced shrub, use sapling Red Willow plants.

History & uses of Salix alba Britzensis: This tree's parent, Salix alba, is native to Britain. This variety was raised in Britz, Germany. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit for being a beautiful plant that is easy to grow.
