Salix ‘Chrysocoma’ – Golden weeping willow 8-10cm girth

Salix ‘Chrysocoma’, more commonly known as the Golden weeping willow, is a large, deciduous tree with a wide, spreading crown and graceful arching habit. Favoured for its long weeping branches, that will eventually reach down to the ground, this tree bears narrow, lance-shaped leaves and catkins in early spring. This foliage is born on golden-yellow shoots and emerges as yellow/green, maturing to a beautiful glossy green.

Reaching a mature height of 20m, Salix ‘Chrysocoma’ is ideal for larger gardens, parks, and woodland. The Golden weeping willow can also be pruned and pollarded to enable planting in smaller spaces if this is required. Often planted as a specimen owing to is picturesque appearance, this tree is well-suited to wet areas as it has a high tolerance to moist soils, this means that it can be planted near large ponds, streams, or coastal sites. Only waterlogged areas should be avoided. Salix ‘Chrysocoma’ is available for sale online or at our nursery!
