Raesfeld comes in 10"-12" cuttings. I love the colour and feel of this willow!
Its rods are a lovely deep reddish-brown colour with a waxy texture. This basketry rod has dark red shading, stronger on one side of the rod than the other, and lots of small bright red buds. The rods are reasonably sturdy with some branching reaching just over 6' each year but usually there is plenty of finer material too.
The rods turn a much darker red in the winter and are a striking colour, almost blood red at the tips making it truly one of our favourites. The leaves are long and pointed A useful colour to the willow pallet having more red than most. If dried carefully will darken as it drys.
