Salix alba 'Chermesina' is grown in our willow beds at Lakeshore Willows for colorful branches to use in seasonal winter urns and less for basketry.
Grows into a small tree 7m (25') if not pruned
This variety will look beautiful in your garden with its vibrant orange/red branches when it is coppiced annually. Branches are also great for adding color to your winter urns.
IMPORTANT NOTE FROM LENE: I am not a horticulturist and the information provided for each willow variety is based on my observations growing and using the willows here at Lakeshore Willows. The information about growth habit is quoted from Christopher Newsholme's book: Willows, The Genus Salix.
