Description
A willow that has all the characteristics that you would expect from this species but with the added bonus of displaying bright red young stems in the winter. Scarlet willow adapts well to being incorporated into a hedgerow and the regular clipping will encourage more of the red shoots to grow. Ideal for planting in areas that usually have poor drainage and are prone to flooding as they will happily tolerate these conditions. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 45cm (18"). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Plant Scarlett Willow in moist soil that is also well drained. When initially planting, ensure plenty of compost or organic matter is incorporated into the planting hole to give the plant the best possible start.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
Water well until established, prune out dead or old wood to encourage new shoots to appear.
