Salix Udensis is a lovely shrubby vigorous willow, with very early catkins (already opening in Jan in Argyll) so one of the best for early bees in mild spring days, its branching and covered in soft strappy leaves that our sheep love, cut and come again all year, so really good for a fenceline hedgerow where the stock can help themselves from one side, and we can make tree hay from the other.  It does not get very tall and thrives on being cut back.

  • Salix Udensis .. a branching vigorous shrubby willow with lots of fine leaves, one of the earliest to bud and provide vital food for the bees and other pollinators that are out in the mild winter weather.
