Salix x sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' | Willow Tree
Improved golden version of the classic landscape tree
The most popular of the classic weeping willows, this tree is a beautiful example of the genus, with slender leaves, creating a cavern of green-gold light at the trunk. This tree carries itself with grace and the golden stems glimmer in the light to create a luxurious curtain of gold during the day and look simply magnificent if lit from below during the night.
Willow are easy to grow and require little care, they are fast too and will reach 2-3m after just a few years.This tree enjoys moist but well-drained soil in a variety of pH levels and soil types so is suitable for planting almost anywhere.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
