Description

Silky Willow Live Stakes are Swampy and Wet Region Native

Silky Willow The Black Willow (Salix Nigra) is a native tree to North America. The nickname of the Black Willow is swamp willow and is mainly found in the eastern United States and the mid-western states as well. Since this tree needs a constant or well-established water source, it grows best along the Gulf Coast, the Atlantic Coast, and the Mississippi River valley area and can be found in Canada. As previously stated, these trees need a lot of water to maintain healthy growth. They do best in soils heavy with moisture and with a good source of sunlight. These trees have a large and complex root system that often helps steady the land to keep riverbank erosions minimum.

For this reason, Black Willows is the perfect tree to plant on the ground that is near water and continuously wet. A Black Willow usually will not start producing seeds until about ten years old. These trees grow the most during the springtime, and that is also when they are most likely to bloom and produce seeds. When there is an excellent water source and full sunlight, these trees will grow fast and large. The branches do not hang down but instead build up and out.

Silky Willow Live Stakes can Withstand Floods and Adapt to Soil Changes as Well. 

Because these trees are native to swampy, wet regions, they can withstand floods and can continue to grow after an area has flooded. They are also able to adapt to changes in the soil. Neither individual minerals nor a certain amount of nitrogen is needed to grow these trees. Black Willows are also very resistant when it comes to insect damage. The branches of this tree are easy to bend and are helpful to build with because they do not splinter easily. Being so hard to splinter makes these branches perfect for constructing crates and other wooden utensils or knickknacks. Before modern times, branches of trees were also used to make artificial limbs for people. When ingested by way of tea or even by chewing on it, the bark provides one with natural pain relief due to the amount of salicin or salicylic acid that it holds. Swamp Willow is the nickname of this tree and is mainly found in the eastern and mid-western states. This tree needs a constant water source to grow best along the Gulf Coast, the Atlantic Coast, and the Mississippi River. It can be found in Canada.

 This tree helps keep erosion at a minimum because of its extensive, complex root system. This makes this tree perfect to plant on land that stays wet. The Silky Willow grows the most and blooms and produces seeds in the Spring. The branches grow up and out instead of hanging down. They make excellent shade trees. There are no unique minerals of nitrogen needed to grow these trees.

 The Silky Willow Tree is native to much of the Eastern half of North America. These trees can reach anywhere between six and fifteen feet tall and around four to twelve feet wide. A Silky Willow can view as a perennial tree or a multi-stemmed shrub. The silky Willow will happily grow from seed, bare-root, potted sapling, and cuttings, making it incredibly easy to plant.

  The leaves of this tree are lance-like blades that are dark green on the top and light green underneath. In the fall, the leaves turn a striking yellow color. This plant's active growth period is during the Spring and summer, with a significant focus on the mid-spring. The Silky Willow will have yellow and green stamens before sprouting soft, yellow-green blooms during May and finally fruiting in June from March to April. The silky willow tree provides an exciting pop of color with branchlets that come in red-brown, yellow-brown, or violet. Silky Willow is a plant that can provide year-round interest when adequately cared for and admired. 

  The silky willow tree is low maintenance and adaptable to a multitude of light conditions. This plant needs a lot of watering and requires the occasional pruning, but the silky willow tree is happy to grow without too much guidance and care from the gardener, who helps it be a very stress-free plant. The silky willow tree does best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil and will tolerate deer, erosion, wet soil, and black walnut.
