Description

Available Summer 2017 - Grown for its superb winter stem colour, Salix alba 'Golden Ness' has beautiful, burnished gold branches in winter. These stems give the best colour if the plant is coppiced each spring.

We find Salix alba 'Golden Ness' looks particularly good when planted alongside streams or ponds and is ideal for use in a winter garden.

Supplied Size: Sorry, now sold out. If you are interested in this plant please email us at sales@bluebellnursery.com or call our office on (01530) 413700 and we will contact you when available.

  • Habit: Salix alba 'Golden Ness' eventually grows to be a medium sized, upright tree if left unpruned (The photos above show a regularly coppiced plant in our gardens).

    • Spread: 8 m (26 ft) or 1.5 m (5 ft) if coppiced yearly.
