Lovely drooping branches; a large tree that can get up to 70 feet tall and a pollinator powerhouse. Willows are among Keystone Plants, those that feed the largest numbers of pollinators. Beautiful in a wet area of the yards and as part of a native or pollinator garden.
Willows should be planted away from sewer lines and in areas where the soil is not likely to dry out.
