USES: large ornamental tree; if coppiced it provides lots of stems for cutting; great winter color for the garden, container or vase; good for basketry and dried stems turn orange.
Two-year stems of ‘Jaune de Falaise’ in the nursery, with few branches of another willow behind. Bright yellow branches show well against a blue sky.
