Black willow care

Black Willow prefers full or partial sun and wet to moist conditions. This tree adapts readily to a wide range of soil types, but it is more typical of heavy soil containing some clay or gravel, rather than sand. Black Willow grows rapidly, but it is rather short-lived. Because of its soft wood, this tree is prone to storm damage, and its widely spreading roots can clog water and sewer lines.

Sunlight Full sun to part shade
Watering Medium to wet
Soil well-drained soil
Temperature freezing
Fertilizer Apply any organic fertilizer

Black willow special feature

Birds eat the catkins, and other animals eat the bark and twigs. It is well-adapted to streamsides and is planted to reduce erosion.
