Silky Willow Fascines are also known as Salix Sericea. Hardy in planting zones 4-8. The growth rate at maturity can reach 6-15 feet tall and 4-12 feet wide. Silky Willow will have yellow and green stamens/styles from March to April. This plant will have an attractive, showy flower that is often dried and used in flower arrangements.

Silky Willow Fascines, Salix Sericea are Very Attractive to Bees with its Variety of Colorful Blooms 

   

Silky willow can be pruned in early spring or late in winter. If a smaller shrub is desired, cut back to the ground about every 3-5 years. It also tolerates deer, erosion, wet soil, and even black walnut. The male plants will have the ornamental pearl gray catkins on a stem without leaves with a skin that feels like a cat’s paw, where it gets its name. The Silky Willow (Salix Sericea) is a multi-stemmed and fast-growing shrub or perennial tree that is moisture-loving found along rivers, brooks, streams, swamps, and near any running fresh water, mainly in the eastern United States and in Canada. 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 both to the silk flowers and to 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.
