Salix caprea Kilmarnock, or weeping Kilmarnock willow, is a small, rounded deciduous tree of pendulant habit. It has yellowish branches and a dense cover of dark green oval leaves. The large, fluffy grey buds become catkins with yellow anthers, opening before the leaves, giving a welcome splash of colour against the bare dark stems. The stems are ideal for winter flower arrangements. A delightful accent tree for the smaller garden.
Comes in two sizes. Larger sizes may be available in store.
