Silky Willow Live Stakes Description

Silky Willow Live Stakes 

Silly Willow Live Stakes, scientifically known as Salix sericea, have silvery, narrow leaves and are native to all the regions of North America. It is a shrub, which means you'll get to see a lot of stems coming from the single woody base. The leaves of this shrub are pretty simple yet captivating. They can be either lobed or unlobed and don't separate into leaflets. 

Only one blade occurs on each node found along the plant's stem. The leaf's edges acquire teeth, but these are incredibly soft and won't harm you. You'll get to see the beauty of the leaves all year except for winter because they shed off in this season. The fruit of this shrub is quite dry, and upon ripening, this fruit will split open. In the winter, you'll see a range of beautifully-colored twigs. They can be yellow, red, brown, or purple. 

They are named because of their soft bushy blooms resembling cotton balls and often hugging the branches.

The stem of these trees is brown, enveloped by mesmerizing white flowers. Then, when the fall comes knocking on its door, the flowers attain a beautiful red fall color that shines brighter than all other flowers. It is usually considered to be an ornamental tree. The stems of these trees can be cut and used as centerpieces to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. 

Silky Willow Live Stakes is a fast-growing tree that can increase its height by 3 feet per year

The branches can grow to a maximum height of 4 feet, and you can cut them off at different heights, according to your liking. The branches showcase their beauty in early spring and remain with you till the end of summer. During fall, the bloom stays, but the color turns into a lustrous dark brown.

The plant blooms the best in damp soil and wetlands. It does well along the creeks, swampy areas, rivers, and streams. It is a fast-growing tree that can increase its height by 3 feet per year. 

The plant thrives well in total sun exposure and acidic soil other than moist soil. It can also be grown under partial shade and dry soil conditions. However, exposure to the sun for at least six hours is preferred, and the soil must be kept moist. If you want to see that lovely cotton bloom, the pH of the soil must be between 6 and 8. They can also endure any weather extremes. It is low maintenance. You have to water the soil whenever it's dry, and you're good to go. 

Who wouldn't want to see a soft bloom in their house garden that can light up the mood in one sight? If you wish to have a similar experience, buy silky willow live stakes as soon as possible.
