Product Description

Black Willow Tree - Size is 1-3 Feet in Height

 
Named for dark brownish-black bark, the Black Willow is one of the fastest growing willows. It grows to be one of the largest willows when mature. Leaves are sprawling and create an irregular tree shape. The shallow roots prefer moist soil; they are naturally found in wetlands and along streams. Roots need a lot supply of water during the growing season. They are very tolerant of flooding. The trunk is usually one thick trunk or several trunks growing from one root set. The wood is light, sturdy, and resists splintering; therefore, it has many commercial uses. Historically, natural Glucoside Salicin was extracted from the bark and leaves of the willow and used to treat ailments such as rheumatism. The ingredient, salicyclic acid, is currently used in aspirin; although it is now made synthetically.

Narrow leaf blades taper to a point and grow up to 5 inches long. They are dark green and shiny on top and light green underneath. When ripe, reddish-brown, cone-shaped fruit dries and cracks open. In March and April, modest yellow flowers or catkins, lacking petals, bloom at the time when leaves appear in spring. Leaves turn yellow in the fall and either fall off or wither and remain on branches during winter. It grows best in moist soil and typically can be found in clay, loam, and sand.
