    Silky willow - salix sericea


    The silky willow can be a beautiful addition to any homeowner's landscape. In ideal growing conditions, this lovely tree can reach a mature height of up to 25 feet tall with an equal branch span. On average, however, the tree is more likely to be around the 10-foot range with a width of between four and 10 feet wide. Growing at a rate of more than three feet per year, the silky willow can be an ornamental tree or a large shrub in most yards. The silky willow produces yellow, white and green flowers in March and April. These pretty, showy flowers are often perfect for dried flower arrangements. The male plants feature ornamental pearl gray catkins. Leaves of the silky willow measure about six to 10 centimeters in length and seven to eight millimeters in width. On the top surface, the silky willow leaves are dark green with light hairs while bottom sides are lighter green and densely covered with silky hairs.
    Silky willow live stakes also produce small blue-black berries that are pleasant to look at and attract birds, squirrels, chipmunks and other wildlife to a homeowner's yard. The silky willow likes moist soil conditions but tolerates dry soil as well. Pruning is easy in the early spring or late winter, and the silky willow can be cut to the ground every three to five years if a homeowner wishes to maintain the plant as a small shrub instead of a tree. The silky willow is hardy in climate zones four to nine. It adapts to various soils and prefers fulls sun but can do well in partial sun. The silky willow tolerates deer, erosion, wet soil and black walnut trees. Silky willow live stakes ship as bareroot plants. Homeowners can improve the image of their landscape quickly with this lovely tree.
