Salix sitchensis (Sitka Willow)

Common streamside shrub

Sitka willow is a common streamside shrub growing to 25 feet in height.  It requires moist, sunny areas such as along streams, rivers, ponds, or sloughs.  Sitka willow is an important wildlife shrub as it provides food and shelter for everything from beaver to butterfly larvae.   Sitka willow is a great choice when planting in moist spots prone to erosion, such as streambanks and drainage areas.  Sitka willow is also a popular "pussy willow" since the catkins often appear before the leaves.  Please contact us for prices and availability.
