Salix x acutifolia is grown in our willow beds at Lakeshore Willows for basketry and living willow work.
Grows into a large shrub if not pruned.
This variety works well for Living Willow Work, and can also be used for basketry. Not the best weaver, but very beautiful in a basket.
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.
