Silky Willow Live Stakes

Silky Willow - Salix sericea. The silky willow plant is a native of North America with silvery, narrow leaves. The plant is a shrub, which means there are several stems which grow from the woody base. The leaves are simple, either lobed or unlobed without being separated into leaflets. One blade occurs per each node along the plant's stem. The edges of the leaves have teeth, and the leaves drop off each winter. The shrub's fruit is dry and will split open upon ripening. In the winter, the twigs can be brown, yellow, purple, or red. The plant naturally thrives in wetlands and other areas of damp soil.
