At its maturity, it will often reach a maximum height of 12 feet at 20 years old but usually is 6.6 to 13.1 feet in height. Its name “silky willow” refers to the silk flowers and the “silky” white hairs on the undersides of its leaves. The leaves are lance-like blades, are dark green on the top, light green underneath, and turn to yellow in the fall. The flowers (catkins) are also silky and, for some reason, are very attractive to bees. The plant’s active growth period is in the spring and summer, with the most significant bloom of fruit and seed in the mid-spring. Usually, during May, it will have yellow-green blossoms and then fruits in June, propagated by seed, bare root, cuttings, and container. These trees slowly form colonies when propagated from seed.
The plants often form clones by stem fragmentation. The stems have branches that are highly brittle at the base and are violet or gray-brown. The branchlets are violet, red-brown, or yellow-brown and are sparse to densely velvety. The plant is low maintenance but does demand a lot of watering. It does best in slightly acidic and well-drained soils; the soil needed is clay, acid, loan, or sand that remains moist. The plant is adaptable to light conditions from growing in the open shade or having lots of suns, and it can survive any weather. This plant can brighten the garden by bringing variety and a shade of purple when the sunlight hits its purplish twigs. It is easy to find the Silky Willow Live Stakes in garden stores, nurseries, and other plant distributors.
