  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil. Unlike many other willows, Salix exigua usually prefers a dry, well drained soil and can fail in very wet areas.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Salix exigua grows to be a large, branching shrub.
    • Height: 3 m (10 ft) - 4 m (13 ft)
    • Spread: 3 m (10 ft) - 4 m (13 ft)
  • Pruning: Salix exigua is very effective if pruned back to 30 cm (1 ft) above the ground each spring before coming into leaf. This encourages it to produce vigorous arching stems and fresh, beautiful silvery foliage.
