Rosemary Leaf Willow,also known as hoary willow, is a large shrub with very narrow leaves and reddish-brown stems. It thrives on wet soil and needs plenty of sun. Rosemary Leaf Willow is not suitable for a neat, clipped hedge but it certainly can be grown in a row as a screening shrub, up to about 5 metres high.

Rosemary Leaf 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 rosmarinifolia plants: Common Names: Hoary Willow, Rosemary Leaf Willow This is lovely big shrub to grow on wet soil, with silvery grey foliage in spring and lush green leaves in summer that turns yellow in autumn. After the leaves have fallen, the rusty coloured stems are on view in winter. Like all willows, it is an excellent plant for bees and butterflies.
History & uses of Salix rosmarinifolia Formerly known as Salix rosmarinifolia, this tree has now officially been reclassified as Salix eleagnos angustifolia, although most books haven't taken up the new name. It is a good source of thin, flexible stems for basket weaving when it is cut back hard every year. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit for being attractive and easy to grow.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
