Salix fragilis 'Bullata' - Crack Willow

Many types of Salix fragilis are enormous and invasive. However, the more shrub-like Bullata is much more compact and easier to use in a landscape. The very twiggy branches look outstanding when planted with other basket-type willows. It will make a beautiful winter hedgerow.

Description: large shrub or small tree; vigorous; 3-6 m (10-20'); yellow-green new growth; leaves are lanceolate and dark green; showy large catkins on bare stems

Conditions: full sun to part shade; thrives in moist fertile soil; can tolerate drier poor soil; prune for utility

Coldest zone: 4 (find your zone; further info on plant hardiness)
