Salix elaeagnos angustifolia / Rosmarinifolia Hedging

Also known as hoary willow or narrow-leaved olive willow, is a lovely big shrub to grow on wet soil, with silvery grey foliage in spring and lush green leaves in summer that turn gold in autumn. After the leaves have fallen, the rusty coloured stems are on view in winter. Like all willows, Salix rosmarinifolia is an excellent plant for bees and butterflies. The latin name gives the leaf shape away they are very rosemary-like. This is one of the absolutely best willows to grow near still water, sited so you can see its reflection.

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).

Common Names: Hoary Willow, Rosemary Leaf Willow

History & uses of Salix rosmarinifolia: 

Formerly known as Salix rosmarinifolia, this tree has now officially been reclassified as Salix elaeagnos 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.
