Silky Willow - Salix sericea

This beautiful perennial is a shrub and makes a perfect addition to a wet area that needs some greenery in zones 4-8. Its thin and purplish twigs create a beautiful color that stands out prominent in the fall. This plant requires a lot of water, so it's best to place it near a water feature that will provide the water it needs. This shrub does great in shade, full sun, or an area that experiences both.

The preferred soil would be acid, average, loam, clay, or sand that stays wet and moist. Its average height at total growth can be expected to land between 6 feet to 12 feet. In May, you can expect to see yellow-green blooms start popping out. This plant gets the name "silky willow" because of the hairy but silky underside of the leaves. The flowers blooming on this plant are extremely attractive to bees and beloved for their nectar. This plant naturalizes and creates colonies very quickly through dropped seeds. They will spread and grow in numbers if not observed over the years.

Silky Willow Plants are Incredibly Poplar

One of the reasons they are so incredibly popular with plant owners is that they require very little assistance as long as they are near a water source. They live freely with very little assistance or care required. They brighten your yards in the spring when their flowers bloom and in the fall when the color of the bark shines through with its unique shade of purple. You can plan that the silky willowwill grow to its tallest height in twenty years.

The Silky Willow plant can survive many weather conditions with a consistent water source

You won't have to worry too much about its survival during winter and summer so long as the water is always near.
