Salix alba is an attractive willow tree, whose branches droop elegantly as they age and whose narrow silvery leaves distinguish it from other willows. The White Willow makes a good specimen tree near water, but it is also commonly coppiced and pollarded for its young, flexible shoots.
The current height of these trees is 15-30cm and they can be planted outside year round.
