Information Only - Native to China, Salix magnifica is a rare, upright large shrub or eventually very small tree in the right conditions with large and handsome, magnolia-like leaves. Established plants can have eye-catching long catkins, sometimes up to 10 in. in spring.

This plant is currently listed on our website for Information Only - While we have grown this plant before, sadly it is not currently available for sale. We hope to have this plant for sale at some point in the future and at this time it will be re-enabled on our website.
