Plant Description and Details

Peachleaf Willow finds its niche in stablizing streambanks and providing shade to watercourses. Easy care, it grows quickly to make a screen of attractive, yellowish-green peach-tree-look-alike leaves.Requires frequent watering to feed its deep, branching roots if it is not close to a stream. Prune up the lower branches and it will make a beautiful shade tree.
