Silky Willow Tree Description

Silky Willow Tree 

Silky Willow Trees are known scientifically as Salix sericea. 

The Silky Willow Tree is a rapidly flourishing recurring shrub that thrives in damp conditions. This plant’s leaves appear as spear-like blades in a deep green color on their upper surface and pale green underneath its leaves. Silky Willow blooms yellow-green flowers during its flowering season, which feel silky, hence this plant’s name. Plant your Silky Willow Live Stake along the banks of a garden stream with smaller flower-bearing perennials such as orange or red daylilies to add beauty and color to your garden habitat.

Care and Maintenance

The Silky Willow Tree blossoms well in water gardens along a fresh-water stream or pond. Fresh running water is needed for this plant to blossom fully. Silky Willow Live Stakes bloom between March and May, maturing into full fruition in June. During the fall season, this tree turns yellow. Planting your Silky Willow Trees is simple: push the stake into wet soil as deep as you can, up to about two-thirds of the length of the stakes, perpendicular to the soil surface. To create a thicket of Silky Willow Trees, plant the stakes staggered in a 2-foot grid. After planting, your Silky Willow tree will spend time in root development, bearing a few leaves and some lateral branches by mid-summer. Silky Willow grows best in somewhat acidic, well-drained soil, like clay, loam, or sand that remains moist. This plant blooms in partial shade and direct sunlight and can endure various weather conditions without complications. At maturity, your Silky Will Live Stem will realize 6 to 13 feet and can be 4-12 feet in width. The Silky Willow Tree will live for up to 20 years, given the right planting conditions. 




As an ornamental tree in your backyard water garden, the Silky Willow Tree is an exceptional choice. It helps with soil erosion and is easy to care for, making this unique tree a must-have. It will attract small mammals and insects for pollination. At maturity, your Silky Willow Tree will hold many wonders for those who view it.
