Semperflorens comes in 10"-12" cuttings. One of the most remarkable things about this willow is that it flowers in the autumn rather than the spring. From the end of the summer right through until the end of autumn it produces pale?lemon/green catkins making it an important food supply for bees and other insects when little else is flowering. It is fast growing, producing long straight rods up to 4m (12') within a year when coppiced. The rods are very sturdy and dark olive green in colour, over winter they appear rough and because they rarely branch and are so tall, they are great for structural work around the garden. The leaves are long and pointed, and as well as the catkins, stay on quite late into the autumn making it an attractive addition to the garden.
A real must for a winter garden and great for a tall floral arrangement not to mention as a support for the runner beans!
