A handsome species of willow native to North America, Salix candida has large grey, felt-like, wooly leaves and eye-catching, large yellow catkins in late winter or early spring. If coppiced yearly, this male form makes a beautiful, vigorous but small, foliage plant which is very suitable for gardens of most sizes. If left unpruned, Salix candida will become a taller shrub suitable for larger gardens.

The soft leaves are very tactile, making it an interesting addition to gardens planted to stimulate all the senses.
