    Plant Feed. Slow release feed in spring.
    Watering. Keep well-watered.
    Soil. Fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.
    Basic Care Summary. Plant in a reliably sunny spot. When planting, keep the base of the trunk exposed.
    Best in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.

Salix Trees can tolerate shade and grow in shade but the Salix tree likes and prefers sun or full sun.

The Salix Tree will grow in full sun or partial shade, with the best leaf colors occurring in full sun.

Their natural habitat is often near rivers and streams.

They need a moist soil which is also free-draining.

They grow well in acidic, neutral and alkaline soils.

A Salix usually grows to 4 to 6 feet tall although some have grown to 8 feet tall.

A Salix Caprea Pendula can grow to heights of 8 feet tall and spread out to around 6 feet wide.

To care for a Salix Caprea Pendula you should do the following.

    Plant Feed. Slow release feed in spring.
    Watering. Keep well-watered.
    Soil. Fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.
    Basic Care Summary. Plant in a reliably sunny spot. When planting, keep the base of the trunk exposed.

    Best in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.

If you're starting a Salix Caprea Kilmarock in a container then be sure to place your container in full sun or at least afternoon sun.

Since nadequate sun will result in slow growth and few flowers.

Regular and ample irrigation is key to growing a Salix Caprea Kilmarnock alive, healthy and growing.

When planting it in the ground place it where it can get plenty of sun and then water it at least once or twice per week.

The Salix is grafted onto a form of willow or root stock.

Salix integra are a form of willow tree and the standard ones are frequently grafted onto a form of willow stock.

Salix caprea 'Pendula' trees are often sold grafted onto other types of root stock so they grow a single trunk upright, then weep like an umbrella.

Ungrafted willows creep along the surface as a ground cover.

A Salix Kilmarnock can grow up to 8 feet in height.

'Kilmarnock' willow usually grows to a maximum height of 8 feet, although in some cases it may stand as short as 4 feet.

 The Salix Kilmarnock's  total width ranges from 4 to 6 feet, with branches drooping to form the traditional willow tree umbrella shape.

Willow Trees are bad because Willow Trees are very notorious for getting and developing diseases and because the willow trees put so much energy into getting big, they put very little into their defense mechanisms.

Diseases include cytospora canker, bacterial blight, tarspot fungus, and others.

The reason it's called a pussy willow is because of it's resemblance to cats paws.

At the tail end of winter, fuzzy nubs start to appear along the branches of pussy willows.

These soft silver tufts as well as the plant itself are named for their resemblance to tiny cats' paws, and they feel so much like fur that young children often wonder if they are animals instead of plants.

A pussy willow is the smaller species of the genus Salix (willows and sallows) when their furry catkins are young in early spring.

Pussy willow is a name given to many of the smaller species of the genus Salix when their furry catkins are young in early spring.

These species include: Goat willow or goat sallow, a small tree native to northern Europe and northwest Asia.

Grey willow or grey sallow, a small tree native to northern Europe.

Willows, also called sallows and osiers, from the genus Salix, are around 400 species of deciduous trees and shrubs, found primarily on moist soils in cold and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere

Salix 'Golden Curls' (Willow) is a large shrub or small tree of great ornamental value.

Although the trunk and older branches are upright, forming an oval rounded crown, the younger branches weep gracefully downward, curling and twisting.

Salix alba 'Caerulea' (cricket-bat willow; syn.

Salix alba var. caerulea (Sm.) Sm.; Salix caerulea Sm.) is grown as a specialist timber crop in Britain, mainly for the production of cricket bats, and for other uses where a tough, lightweight wood that does not splinter easily is required.

Most varieties of willows grow best in full sunlight. While some smaller shrub willows grow well in mass plantings as hedges and borders, weeping willows prefer open areas that provide an abundance of light, although they can grow in very light shade.

Salix can be placed in both full sun and shade.

As a riverside plant, Salix likes to be in soil that is always slightly damp.

Salix are willow trees and some grow to huge heights and spread, only suitable for larger gardens and parks.

Salix integra is a dwarf species of willow typically growing to between 2m / 6ft to 6m / 20ft tall.
