Non-rooted hardwood cuttings are available for shipment in spring. This is a relatively easy and economical way to start growing willow. The cuttings are taken when the plants are dormant and are 8-9" in length.They are planted so that only about an inch is out of the ground.
Cuttings are $1.50 each plus shipping, with a minimum of 20 cuttings, please.

Varieties Available for Cuttings:
Salix purpurea 'Green Dicks' - slender rods that dry to a buffy brown
Salix purpurea x daphnoides - dry to darker brown
Salix 'German Basket Willow' - medium brown when dry
Salix alba 'Vitellina' - egg yoke yellow stems
Salix 'Belgium Red' - chocolate brown stems when dry
Salix americana - warm brown

I do grow other varieties of willow - both for baskets and some ornamental pussy willows. Cuttings are available for these as well, though special orders are required. Please inquire as to availability.

Confused about how to begin? Try Lee's Willow Starter Pack - 5 cuttings of my 4 favorite varieties (S. 'Green Dicks', S. purpurea x daphnoides, S.'German Basket Willow', and S.'Vitellina'), just $30 plus shipping ($8.50).

You can place an order either by using the contact page on this website or by giving us a call (563)735-5570. Payment arrangements will be made at that time.

Planting instructions are included with orders
