Salix triandra 'Noir de Villane' - Almond leaved willow

A popular willow for basketry in Europe. Like 'Black Maul', S. triandra 'Noir de Villane' breaks dormancy well after most other willows have bloomed. Throws 7' rods, which makes it an excellent choice for living willow structures.

A good willow for butterflies and bees.
