Salix sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' (Golden Weeping Willow)

On the 16th January the team spent the day working on the lakeside border removing overgrown shrubs and an old willow tree that had fallen into the lake, see blog entry 'Opening Up The View'. A new Golden Weeping Willow, Salix sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' was planted today, next to where the old one had once stood. The new willow is a fast growing deciduous tree with narrow pale green leaves on yellow pendent stems producing yellow catkins in April, a beautiful addition to the lakeside border.
