Daintier, is the Pekin Willow’, Salix matsudana Tortuosa’, now leafless and able to display to the full its own, far gentler, undulating stems. Later, it will offer its own characteristic catkins and slim, elegant leaves. How well this tree looks near water, although does not demand it. Brilliant of bark are Scarlet Willow’ Eco friendly home designs (Salix alba Chermesina’j and Golden Willow’ (S. alba Vitel-lina’). Pruned hard every other year, each produces shoots of intense colour, cheering any winter’s day.
