Silky Willow Live Stake 

Silky Willow Live Stake is a rapid-flourishing shrub or recurring tree that is dampness-loving. 

This plant is scientifically known as Salix sericea. Silky Willow is referred to as silk flowers and some white hairs located on the leaves' undersides.

Conditions like the choice of hardy planting zones, sun or shade required, blooming season and color, heights at maturity, and soil types preferred are necessary for its flourishing. 

The factors mentioned have been expounded below. 


 Hardy Planting Zone: Salix sericea blossoms in planting zones 3-9. Its moisture-loving nature makes it do well along streams, rivers, creeks, and swampy areas. The presence of any fresh running water can be appreciated by blossoming fully. Silky Willow has recorded survival in Coastal, Mountain, and Piedmont Regions.

Blooming Season and Color: Salix sericea blooms during the spring and summer seasons. Blooming happens from March to May during the year and finally matures into fruition in June. The leaves are spear-like blades with a deep green color on their upper surface and pale green beneath the leaves. Silky Willow has a flower blooming color of yellow-green during the flowering season. During the fall season, it completely turns yellow.

Maturity Height: The maturity height of the Silky Willow at 20 years is 12 feet. However, naturally, its peak is 6.6 to 13.0 feet and 4-12 feet wide. Farmers should propagate it by cuttings, seed, and container, among others. When they propagate from seed, it gradually develops colonies.

Soil Type: Silky Willow does well in soil with a Ph of anywhere between 6 and 8 and should be moist or wet. Salix sericea blossoms best in somewhat acidic soil and any well-drained soil. The type of soil preferred is acidic, clay, loam, or sand that remains moist.

Sun and Shade: Silky Willow is malleable to light surroundings. It can blossom in the open shade or even under direct sunlight. Generally, it can endure any weather without complications.
